The Data Analytics of Application Scaling and Why There Are No Giants

Like the 30 ft. giant in 'Jack and the Beanstalk,' myths and fallacies abound regarding application scaling. Many blog posts show some performance data as time-series charts, but otherwise only offer a qualitative analysis. This talk is intended to remedy that by showing you how to QUANTIFY scalability. Time series are not sufficient to assess cost-benefit of cloud services and other scalability trade-offs. After reviewing the nonlinear constraints on the scalability of giants, we apply similar nonlinear data-analytics techniques to determine the universal scalability constraints on such well-known applications as: MySQL, Memcache, NGINX, Zookeeper, and Amazon AWS.
