Carl and Richard talk to Marc Mercuri and Mark Simms about resilient cloud architecture. The conversation starts out focused on the white paper called ‘FailSafe’ and the guidance it provides for building resilient cloud applications – but the information is applicable to any large scale system running on any sort of infrastructure. While the topic area is huge, Marc and Mark break down the concepts into understanding your application, finding failure points, planning for failure (it’s going to happen!) effective instrumentation and more. Lots of great thinking on how to build apps that can survive the huge tsunami of success.
