In this presentation, Glenn Block discusses how Splunk uses node.js in its products. Surprising, huh? Node shows up in various islands of Splunk’s architecture from the Splunk Server, to middleware components, and finally in the SDKs. The focus here is on real world usage, the specific places where we chose to use node and why, as well as the team’s experiences deploying it into production. What’s Splunk? It’s a product designed for data ingest and query for massive realtime data work loads. It is used by some of the largest organizations in the world.
This session is sponsored by Splunk.
