  • Welcome to our Investors briefing,
  • Transcript

    • 1. Secure ● Organise ● Share …your Digital Lifetime
    • 2. 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
    • 3. PutPlace Grid
    • 4. The PutPlace Grid
    • 5. 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!
    • 6. 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
    • 7. 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
    • 8. 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?
