Technical Decisions for Infrastructure at Ticketmasterby Tim Nichols
Ticketmaster has a large scale infrastructure built to sell tickets and provide access to the world’s largest live events. We've tuned our infrastructure to deliver that in the most effective ways. Big data systems and data science methods introduced new workloads, and dramatic resource consumption that changed many operational assumptions. We'll discuss: how we fit data science tools in existing infrastructure; lessons we’ve learned implementing these tools at large scale; ways that we’re rethinking operational ideas to leveraging data science concepts. Finally we'll talk about applying those ideas in our transition to public cloud.
