Transcript of "NYC Amazon Web Services Meetup: How Glue uses AWS"

  1. 1. AdaptiveBlue @ AWS NYC Meetup June 4, 2009 Mark Tabry, Software Engineer http://getglue.com
  2. 2. Agenda  About AdaptiveBlue  Glue: The Network of People and Things  Glue: Building on Amazon Web Services  Glue: Semantic Technology Stack
  3. 3. About AdaptiveBlue  Founded in 2006, based in New York  Focuses on enhancing browsing experience  Launched BlueOrganizer and Glue add-ons for Firefox and SmartLinks Widgets for blogs
  4. 4. Get Glue. The Network That Sticks With You. http://getglue.com
  5. 5. What is Glue? Glue is a contextual network that uses semantic technology to automatically connect people around everyday things - books, music, movies, stars, artists, stocks, wine, restaurants and more.
  6. 6. 1. Contextual: Glue is distributed and appears when it makes sense on popular sites. 2. Automatic: Users participate in Glue just by browsing their favorite sites. 3. Simple: Glue removes the friction involved in networking - the network comes to you.
  7. 7. Glue Demo
  8. 8. Glue: Building on Amazon Web Services
  9. 9. AWS-based Architecture Client Layer Browser Add-Ons Widgets iPhones Facebook Apps API Clients Load Balancer Layer Round Robin DNS Load Balancer 1 Load Balancer 2 Web Service Layer Host 1 (EC2) Host N (EC2) Glue Web Service Glue Web Service ... Batch Services Batch Services Database Layer Amazon S3 Rackspace MySQL Amazon SimpleDB Object Database/ User accounts Interactions between People Profiles Analytics People and Things
  10. 10. AdaptiveBlue AWS Stack Relating People and Things ( SimpleDB ) Records of people’s interactions around things are stored in SimpleDB Domains using duplication for fast access. Storing Object Meta Data ( S3 ) XML representation of millions of books, music, movies, etc. is stored using Amazon S3 Transactional and Batch Support ( EC2 ) Web Service Requests and batches are distributed through EC2 instances.
  11. 11. Amazon SimpleDB in a Nutshell Simple DB Domain Idea: Record 1 Key1 Attributes: A1,A2… Create flat database with auto-indexed tables. … Record N Main Features: Key2 Attributes: A1,A2…  Each attribute is indexed.  Record structure is flexible. Get record  Basic operators in queries Put record Query records  Supports sorting. Client
  12. 12. How Glue uses SimpleDB Interaction Record Key1 Attributes: A1,A2… Object Domains People Domains OD1 OD2 … ODN PD1 PD2 … PDN  Each record is duplicated into Object and Person Domain  The Key is a combination of USER_ID and OBJECT_KEY  Djb2hash is used to calculate the domain for each record Records for each USER and each OBJECT inside the same domain.
  13. 13. Amazon S3 in a Nutshell Amazon S3 Idea: Bucket 1 Bucket N Put/Get objects into buckets … based on unique keys. Put object Get object Main Features:  Public/Private access.  Support for large objects. Client
  14. 14. How Glue Uses S3 Object Bucket People Bucket XML-files with object information XML-files with user and friends info  XML is serialized as string and written to S3  Each file has a unique key: OBJECT_ID or USER_ID/profile, etc.
  15. 15. Amazon EC2 in the Nutshell Usage:  Create Machine Image  Deploy the image to S3  Start 1 or more instances  Use it as regular machine(s) Main Options: Machine  Dynamic/Static IPS Image  Choose cores (OS + Apps)  Choose locations  Persistence via EBS
  16. 16. How Glue uses EC2 Round Robin DNS Load Balancer 1 Load Balancer 2 Host 1 (EC2/Rackspace) Host N (EC2/Rackspace) Glue Web Service Glue Web Service ... Batch Services Batch Services  Web Service processes transactional requests  Batch Services are time-based & run on sets of USERS and OBJECTS The system scales by equally partitioning Data and Requests
