Mike's Talks

Anatomy of a Failure

Time: 1:30-2:30 p.m., September 29th

Location: Veterans Room

Large systems fail constantly and in a wide variety of ways. Planning for those failures and responding under pressure are vital to running a reliable service.

In this presentation, we will discuss the way that the Heroku engineering teams plan for failures. We will cover our on-call methodology, incident response procedures, and metrics we use to track our performance. Finally, since everyone loves war stories, we'll present a couple of case studies on outages that we've experienced and how we responded to them.

We are announcing the 2011 line up of speakers and sessions starting on May 19th. One each day, in no particular order.
