Resumo: 

Google and eBay operate some of the largest Internet sites on the planet, and each maintains its leadership through continuous innovation in infrastructure and products. While substantially different in their detailed approaches, both organizations have lessons to teach. This keynote tells several war stories from Google and eBay focusing on performance, consistency, resilience, and autoscaling. It details hard-won lessons learned in scaling those companies' infrastructures, organizations, and technology stacks. It finally describes how we put those lessons into practice in the context of real-time games at KIXEYE, and offers concrete suggestions you can apply to your own organization.
