This is a dry run of my presentation for LISA ’14.
We are nuts about performance, and very proud of what we are able to do with a Microsoft based stack at scale.
This talk will go over the Architecture that is used at Stack Exchange to serve millions of users on a WISC stack. I will go over the general architecture, our tooling, and what we use to make the site run fast.
George is an SRE generalist at Stack Exchange. He has worked on every part of the stack from Windows, to Linux, to the network infrastructure.
His experience working in the IT field over the past thirteen years has led him to love working with multiple technologies, and allowed him to experience everything from running a small network as a consultant to being part of a large team running very large scale infrastructure.
