Presentation: DigitalOcean: Microservices in your Datacentre



2:55pm - 3:45pm

Day of week:




Most cloud companies use traditional processes and architectures when developing their platform. DigitalOcean is different, we are a product-driven cloud company, focusing on building the best developer experience.

Over the years, we have migrated from a monolithic architecture to SOA and microservices. Today our distributed services support more than 13 million virtual machines, including block storage and monitoring.

But if the easiest way to deploy services is on the cloud, but what happens when what you are building is the cloud itself? In this talk let's discuss the patterns and techniques we use to evolve our architecture from the dark days of a Perl monolith to now.
