Infrastructure in a Post-Cloud Era, Isaac (.ike) Levy
18:45, Woolworth Building: 233 Broadway, 21st Floor
Notice: Location Change
With a *BSD-minded perspective, we'll walk through the money and
administrative ends of deploying cloud infrastructure, and compare it to
experiences in colocation.
Building modern internet applications is challenging; so why are so many
technology companies relinquishing control over their technology? The
public clouds, after all, are just computers owned by somebody else.
This presentation contains real data crunched by data scientists, to
help cut through marketing hype. Also covered, strategies and approaches
to help you keep your stack "infrastructure agnostic", as well as
strategies to make cloud metered costs less opaque.
Note: This material was previously presented at LHMK, April 2016 - and
will be presented assuming a technical audience.
Standing on the shoulders of giants, ike's background includes
partnering to run a Virtual Server ISP before anyone called it a cloud,
as well as having a long history building internet-facing infrastructure
with UNIX systems.
NYC startup veteran, and a long-time community contributor to the *BSD
UNIX family, ike has grown computing infrastructure from a hand-full of
virtual servers, to full datacenter-scale internet-facing infrastructure
for a number of growth stage startups.
.ike has been a part of NYC*BUG since it was first launched in January
2004, was a long-time member of the Lower East Side Mac Unix User Group.
He has spoken frequently on a number of UNIX and internet security
topics at various venues, particularly on the topic of FreeBSD's
jail(8), and his involvement in the OPNsense router firewall project.
