[Links of the day] 15/03/2016: AWS Cross region fault tolerance, word of wisdom from AWS's CTO, #NetflixEverywhere Global Architecture

  • Build Fault Tolerant Cross-Region AWS VPC : how Rackspace deploy fault tolerant solution on top of AWS multi region using VPC 
  • 10 Lessons from 10 Years of AWS : words of wisdom from Werner Vogel , CTO of AWS 
  • #NetflixEverywhere Global Architecture : Qcon presentation from Netflix director of Operations Josh Evans, interesting bit is the focus on data replication cross data center ( or availability zones in this case). It seems pretty obvious that Netflix went the right way with dealing with scaling the resiliency of their product : start with the primitive then the data not the other way around. If the data is not available or consistent their is always a chance to fallback at a cost. While if the services are down, having the data available won't help.
