In a perfect world we would run monolithic systems on machines with unlimited CPU, Memory, Disk and Network IO, and with 100% reliability.

The reality is that such a machine does not exist, and to deliver the demands of performance and availability our users demand from our systems, we have to be creative in partitioning workload over multiple machines, geographic regions, and failure domains. This approach introduces complexity to our systems, we expect failure and design accordingly.

In this talk, Nic will walk through the areas of complexity in a system we will then look at what patterns you can employ to ensure performance and availability even in a failing world.

This demo-driven talk will showcase the patterns that can help to adopt a distributed architecture for your applications, especially when moving from a monolithic architecture to a distributed one.

The magic speed of terraform, kubernetes, ambassador, regional bound multi cloud and almost-instant recovery when an entire region falls down in a demo and presentation done well. Thanks guys.

Fantastic talk, probably the best one in the conference. Perfectly executed by both speakers. The rhythm and discourse of Nick along with Erik's complicity was excellent. Incredibly elaborated slides and supporting demos portrait the topic with great balance between theory and practice.
As last year's talk, keep it up.

So great presentation

I don't think the content of the talk was anything new or super cool, but the attitude, spoken skills and preparation of the presentation makes it worth to watch it.

Best presentation without discussion. Well presented, nicely showed the examples, and some harmless jokes in between... top !!!
