At Business Insider, we've been using MongoDB since the beginning and Varnish for almost two years now and together they have enabled us to scale to over 150m monthly pageviews using fewer than ten core production servers.
Business Insider CTO Pax Dickinson will present a talk on how Business Insider uses MongoDB and Varnish and leverages their features to make Business Insider responsive and scalable under the heavy traffic loads that a popular media site has to contend with.
Topics will include implementing Edge Side Includes, performing active purging by integrating Varnish into backend code, integrating Memcached with Varnish and MongoDB, and using MongoDB for scalable internal analytics.
The talk will be followed by an hour of networking time, with refreshments provided. Thanks to 10gen for hosting.
Hope to see everyone who can make it out, this group will be meeting monthly from here and some great future talks are in store as well.
