Presentation: Fail Better: Radical Ideas from the Practice of Cloud Computing


Day of week:

2:55pm - 3:45pm

Distributed or "cloud" computing involves many moving parts, any of which can break or fail. Succeeding in this environment requires embracing failure, not running or hiding from it. To do this requires challenging our instincts with radical ideas. Tom will highlight some of the most radical advice from the new book “The Practice of Cloud System Administration”.

Topics will include: create resiliency at the most economic level, do risky procedures often, and create a blameless culture to encourage communication and improve system reliability. Attendees will be inspired to think differently about how they build resilient distributed systems and will see how to put these ideas in practice.
