Firefox Delivered: OSS Infrastructure for the Masses

Location: E146 Level: Intermediate
Average rating: ***..
(3.00, 1 rating)

As Mozilla Firefox has grown in popularity and usage since its inception in November 2004, its IT team has had to grow rapidly to meet its expanding user-base. For instance, how do you deliver Firefox updates to a community of over 150 million people, updating a majority of them within a mere 48 hours?

Learn how the Mozilla IT team scales its update and software delivery systems to support this massive (and still growing!) user base. Topics include caching, SSL scaling, Web/database tuning and scaling, development/staging/production separation. We’ll also take a candid look at where OSS solutions beat out commercial solutions, and vice versa.
