LinkedIn serves traffic for its 467 million members from four data centers and multiple PoPs spread geographically around the world. Serving live traffic from from many places at the same time has taken us from a disaster recovery model to a disaster avoidance model where we can take an unhealthy data center or PoP out of rotation and redistribute its traffic to a healthy one within minutes, with virtually no visible impact to users. The geographical distribution of our infrastructure also allows us to optimize the end-user's experience by geo routing users to the best possible PoP and datacenter.
This talk provide details on how LinkedIn shifts traffic between its PoPs and data centers to provide the best possible performance and availability for its members. We will also touch on the complexities of performance in APAC, how IPv6 is helping our members and how LinkedIn stress tests data centers verify its disaster recovery capabilities.
