I’d walk a mile for HighScalability:
- 1/12th the World Population on Facebook in One Day; 1.8 ZettaBytes of data in 2011; 1 Billion Foursquare Checkins; 2 million on Spotify; 1 Million on GitHub; $1,279-per-hour, 30,000-core cluster built on EC2; Patent trolls cost .5 trillion dollars; 235 terabytes of data collected by the U.S. Library of Congress in April.
- Potent quotables:
- @jstogdill : Corporations over protect low value info assets (which screws up collaboration) and under protects high value assets. #strataconf
- @sbtourist : I think BigMemory-like approaches based on large put-and-forget memory cans, are rarely a solution to performance/scalability problems. : I think BigMemory-like approaches based on large put-and-forget memory cans, are rarely a solution to performance/scalability problems.
- 1 Million TCP Connections. Remember payday loan 1000 when 10K was a real limit and you had to build out boxes just to handle the load? Amazing. We don’t know how much processing can be attached to these connections, how much memory the apps use, or what the response latency is to requests over these connections, but still, that’s cool. Good discussion on Hacker News.
