New Relic’s multitenant, SaaS web application monitoring service collects and persists over 90,000 metrics every second on a sustained basis, while still delivering an average page load time of 1.5 seconds. In this session I will discuss how good architecture and good tools can help you handle an extremely large amount of data while still providing extremely fast service. I’ll show you how we scale to support customer growth, how we monitor our system, and what traps to look out for.

You should come away from this session with an understanding of how to:

  • the importance of using the right tools for the job
  • how to make informed architecture decisions
  • how app visibility can help drive improvements.

This session is sponsored by New Relic
