@IndeedEng: Redundant Array of Inexpensive Datacenters
Wednesday, June 26, 2013 at 7:00 PM (RSVP)

Learn how Indeed built one of the fastest and most reliable websites in the world!

Indeed Operations ensures indeed.com is always available and always fast for the jobseeker. Operations leaders Charles Valentine and Chris Graf will share how we configure and provision multiple datacenters around the world to provide a massively scalable platform for connecting job seekers with jobs. Charles and Chris will detail a simple and inexpensive method to build a platform that provides DNS-based global load balancing and failover, provider portability, and disposable datacenters.

Charles Valentine (VP of Technology Services at Indeed) leads the Operations, IT, and Security teams. Prior to joining Indeed in 2011, Charles served as VP Technology Services at The Knot.

Chris Graf has managed operations at Indeed since 2011. In that time, Indeed’s traffic has grown by more than 300%. Prior to Indeed, Chris managed Web operations in the online gaming industry.
