  • A Scalability Study of Erlang/OTP
    2012-03-26 Erlang Central

    Videos



    The concurrency model of the Erlang language is claimed to be ideally suited for the multicore era. In theory it allows concurrent programs to achieve good scalability as the number of cores increases. OK, but what happens in practice? Since November 2011, we have embarked on a project that aims to improve the scalability of Erlang programs on machines with hundreds, thousands, and possibly even hundreds of thousands of cores. As a first step, we have created a benchmark suite, consisting of ...

    Some of you are in businesses that generate - possibly vast amounts of - data as part of your regular operations, quite a bit of which is used by your customers in one form or the other.  As your business scales, an issue that you will almost certainly face is that of data latency and consistency degradation. To put it differently, the speed of access to, and reliability of your data will decrease, causing you and your customers quite a bit of pain and suffering. In this talk, we will explor ...

  • Disco: Reflections on Building a Distributed Data Processing Platform with Erlang
    2012-03-26 Erlang Central

    Videos

    Disco is a 5-year old framework for distributing and processing data, complete with its own tag-based filesystem, and a protocol for writing workers to process data in any language. The Disco backend is written in Erlang, which provides a fault-tolerant backbone for coordinating tasks between nodes. This talk will reflect on the evolution of Disco, and the lessons learned in developing a distributed data processing platform with Erlang. We'll talk about what we got right in Disco and where th ...

  • Erlang and PaaS, panel debate
    2012-03-26 Erlang Central

    Videos



    What services could a PaaS provide to make Erlang easier to deploy and operate in production? Are there any Erlang features that are fundamentally incompatible with PaaS? How can some of Erlang/OTP's more unique features (distributed processes, hot code upgrades) be made PaaS compatible?In this session, we'll explore these topics through an open discussion with the aim of discovering how best to make a PaaS where Erlang feels like a first class citizen.Talk objectives: To generate an open discus ...

  • Erlang as a Cloud Citizen
    2012-03-26 Erlang Central

    Videos



    This talk wants to sum up the experience of designing, deploying and maintaining an Erlang application targeting the cloud and precisely AWS as hosting infrastructure. As the application now serves a significantly large user base with a sustained throughput of thousands of games actions per second we're able to analyse retrospectively our engineering and architectural choices and see how Erlang fits in the cloud environment also comparing it to previous experiences of clouds deployments of ot ...

  • Real Time Bidding: Where Erlang Blooms
    2012-03-26 Erlang Central

    Videos



    When advertisers want to buy advertisement, they can do it at large on some user group and hope to get decent results, or participate in Real Time Bidding (RTB). In RTB, advertisers bid on individual advertisement spaces to obtain more targeted audiences. This is usually built on the backbone of large exchanges where bidders require high performance, short response times, and a high volume. BLOOM 's AdGear platform is a service offering (along other things) a unified interface that offers med ...
