Lessons Learned in Scaling Facebook
The software infrastructure that runs Facebook is enormous and complicated - it stores trillions of objects and serves them up in real time as personalized pages to over a billion users every day. It is very fast and reliable, and the way this is accomplished was developed over many years of trial and error. I'll be discussing some of the principles that were learned along the way, both in terms of distributed systems design, as well as more general engineering principles for keeping a large and complicated system running reliably.
