Redundant Array of Inexpensive Datacenters

This talk was held on Wednesday, June 26, 2013 at 7:00pm

Recently we hosted the fifth talk of the @IndeedEng speaker series in our Austin office. Indeed’s VP of Technology Services Charles Valentine & Operations Manager Chris Graf presented “Redundant Array of Inexpensive Datacenters.” During the talk, we discussed how Indeed achieves nearly 100% availability while supporting more than 100 million people and over 3 billion job searches each month, with a massively scalable platform for connecting job seekers with jobs. We described a simple and inexpensive method to build a platform that provides maximum availability and high performance, with DNS-based global load balancing and failover, provider portability, and disposable datacenters.
