Next Thrsday, March 15th 2007, I’ll give a short presentation on HTTP Load Balancing & High Availability with Wackamole at the PHP User Group Dortmund. We can use eZ System’s office (cheers!) at Emil-Figge-Strasse 80. If you’re in the area consider saying hello. We meet at 18:30 (that’s 6:30pm :-) and I’ll start with the presentation as soon as everybody is there and everything is set up.
You’ll learn about how to reliably spread a lot of HTTP requests over a set of machines and when and why it is a good idea to do so. I’ll shed some light on the confusion (even if you’re not aware of any) about Load Balancing and High Availability and how they relate to scaling HTTP. That done, we will look at how to make your application ready for scaling.
Slides, feedback and more info will be up here some time after the presentation. As a special treat, I’ll be back a week later to present CouchDb. More on that in a later post.
