Come learn about the design and implementation of Dynamo!
Dynamo is a highly available key-value storage system that some of Amazon’s core services use to provide an “always-on” experience!

Reliability at massive scale is one of the biggest challenges we face at Amazon.com. Even the slightest outage has significant financial consequences and impacts customer trust. The Amazon.com platform, which provides services for many web sites worldwide, is implemented on top of an infrastructure of tens of thousands of servers and network components located in many datacenters around the world. At this scale, small and large components fail continuously and the way persistent state is managed in the face of these failures drives the reliability and scalability of the software systems. In this talk, we will present the design and implementation of Dynamo, a highly available key-value storage system that some of Amazon’s core services use to provide an “always-on” experience.

Bio:
Mr Sivasubramanian architected several of Amazon systems including Amazon Dynamo, Amazon CloudFront, Amazon RDS and is now managing multiple AWS Database Services
