High-scale cloud services and internet search depend upon efficient mega-scale infrastructure. The pace of innovation is ramping up in datacenter power distribution, mechanical systems, intra-data center networking, and server hardware. When the scale is massive and infrastructure costs dominate, technology changes quickly. This talk inventories high-scale service infrastructure costs and some of the innovations driven by optimizing for work done by joule and work done per dollar.
James is VP and Distinguished Engineer at Amazon Web Services where he focuses on infrastructure efficiency, reliability, and scaling. Prior to AWS, James was architect on the Microsoft Data Center Futures team and, over the years, has held leadership roles on several high-scale services and products, including Exchange Hosted Services, Microsoft SQL Server, and IBM DB2. James loves all things server related and is interested in optimizing all components from data center power and cooling infrastructure, through server design, and to the distributed software systems they host. He maintains a high scale services blog at http://perspectives.mvdirona.com.
