Dealing with unprecedented scale during Covid-19

Presenters: wiifm

Covid-19 for some sites has meant a massive surge in traffic. Some of the health related sites that we look after at have experienced a 80x traffic increase over the last couple months.

This talk is about dealing with this scale of traffic, and what things you can do to help here.

Some of the things that will be discussed:

  • Horizontal scaling and getting this sized this the best
  • Database sizing and tuning
  • Redis┬átuning and gotchas
  • Minimising origin hits
  • CDN tuning
  • Building a culture of continuous improvement

The talk is aimed at anyone with performance in mind, from developers to devops, to sysadmins.
