Scaling Pinterest - The Next Stage
Pinterest's traffic has grown 10x since we gave this talk last year. Sit back and relax while we take you on a tour of the next stage of our architectural evolution. We'll focus on the issues we faced, lessons learned, and resulting solutions put in place to handle our continued rapid growth and expansion. In particular, we'll cover modifications to the architecture to accommodate higher reliability, greater scalability, and a rapidly increasing engineering organization, and we'll discuss what has worked really well and stayed the same. Additionally, we'll briefly touch on our logging and map-reduce infrastructure, spam and security mechanisms, deployment tools, and background task management system.
