Recently, we’ve seen a number of major operational and security incidents affecting large service providers—and through them, huge chunks of the internet. These highly visible events, along with many less publicized ones, have brought renewed attention to best practices for resiliency, but what does resiliency mean when service providers are critical-path components of nearly every application? How should application architectures and incident management processes change (or not)? Should we rethink the place of service providers in our applications in light of these incidents? Kristopher Beevers explores how ops teams and developers are thinking about resiliency in a service provider world.

This keynote is sponsored by NS1.
