In a typical day, New Relic receives half a trillion data points from our customers. All of these need to be processed, stored and made available for charts, queries and alerts as soon as possible. Getting from humble roots to querying more than a billion events a second has meant radically reinventing and re-architecting the whole platform multiple times.
In this session, Matthew Flaming and Nic Benders from New Relic will take you on a deep dive into some of the lessons we've learned along the way and where we go from here. They'll touch on designing scalable services, optimizing for predictability, creating software architecture through team structure, and what it takes to (continuously) rebuild a system that can never stop.
