Heinz Gies: Erlang User Conf 2014
Project FiFo has been around for two years now and grown from a for fun project to run my hobby server to powering private systems installation in multiple universities and last but not least multiple datacenters for the Lucera public cloud.
Between the start and what we have today, FiFo has become a rather complex distributed system and it was not always a smooth ride to get here. This talk will go over the biggest issues and failures and what I have learned from them.
Sharing some of the issues throughout FiFo’s history, giving an idea how they were solved and what I learned from it. Also if possible giving everyone a good laugh and my stupidity.
People interested in distributed systems, failure stories, how ‘clouds’ are built and/or SmartOS.
