Scalability: Set Amazon's Servers on Fire, Not Yours

Don MacAskill, CEO & Chief Geek, SmugMug

Date: Wednesday, March 28
Time: 2:15pm - 3:00pm
Location: Douglas A

With companies like SmugMug, Flickr, and YouTube growing by leaps and bounds, storage is a vital but expensive ingredient. Building, scaling, and managing large storage installations is cash -- and labor --intensive. Amazon provides a simple API that exposes their internal storage architecture at utility prices. Suddenly, anything is possible. Unlimited, always-on storage everywhere in the world. It's a playing field leveller and the seed for a new generation of web applications.

SmugMug moved 50% of its storage infrastructure (>150TB) to Amazon, saved a pile of money, and has more resources to spend on other more important goals.

See why we did it, how we did it, and how it can dramatically change your project.
