Scaling infrastructure is like replacing parts of a moving vehicle without anyone noticing. Instagram’s team, over the last year, didn’t just replace the parts — we’ve changed the entire vehicle. In this talk, we’ll delve for the first time into the motivations, challenges, and insights gained from moving Instagram’s operations from AWS into Facebook’s data centers. Attendees will learn about what went right, what we’d do differently next time, and how you might think about weighing and planning a similar migration.
