The Data Shed & AWS – handling more hits than Barclaycard on Black Friday
We at the Shed are responsible for building and maintaining a critical service in an industry where the numbers of requests can get quite scary.
In collaboration with our partner, AWS, we'll talk about how we built a platform that covers the 5 S’ at extreme load… Stability, Security, Scalability, Speed and Spend. We want to talk to you about how we, as a small team, can harness the power of AWS, allowing us to maintain a stable service, keep sensitive data secure, scale to 20 thousand requests per second, respond in under 300 milliseconds... all without spending the budget of a small European nation to keep it online.
Presenting will be Ed Thewlis (CTO - The Data Shed), Stew Norriss (Head of Architecture & Security - The Data Shed) and Paul Gargan (Solutions Architect - Amazon Web Services)
