PutPlace's use of Amazon Cloud Services PutPlace's use of Amazon Cloud Services Presentation Transcript

  • Secure ● Organise ● Share …your Digital Lifetime
  • PutPlace
    • Online Backup Service
    • Mac and Windows Clients
    • Provide Sharing integration with Flickr/YouTube (Real Soon!)
    • Original BP planned to spend 1m on data-centre in 2007

  • The PutPlace Grid
  • Key Stats
    • Been using Amazon EC2/S3 in production since Jan ‘08
    • Public paid service launched in Oct ’08
    • Backing up around 15000 user files everyday
    • Spend
      • EC2 – USD $ 1200 a month
      • S3 – USD $ 470 a month (S3 costs approximately double each month)
      • Elastic IP – Use it but its really slow to respond
      • No Simple DB (we use Postgres)
      • No SQS (slow, non-determininistic, pricey)
      • No EBS ( waiting and seeing how others perform)
      • Keen on CDN!
  • Things We Use
    • Perlbal – Load balancing
    • Postgres – Database
    • Django – App Servers and Task Managers
    • Nagios – Internal Monitoring
    • Monitis – External Monitoring
    • Hamachi – Virtual Private Network (but no more free  )
    • Hudson – Build Service
    • Lots of Hosted Services
      • Monitis
      • DynDNS
      • GoDaddy
      • Google Docs
      • Google Sites
      • Google Email
  • How we cut costs
    • Big chunk of EC2 cost is DB large instance
      • Partition DB and run on smaller instances
    • Storage is a variable cost
      • compression and deduplication help
    • We get hammered for puts, posts, lists
      • Switch to MogileFS
    • Dirty little secret of online backup – nobody downloads
      • Bandwidth is a marginal cost
    • Automation
      • Can bring up (and down) a new grid in 10 minutes
  • The Future
    • Gearman for Task Management
    • CDN for static content
    • Choice of Storage/Grid in Europe or US
    • More use of regions for fault tolerance
    • More automation around monitoring and deployment
    • More stats
    • Archive Service?
