Scaling the Cloud


Sebastian Stadil

This week's Technometria podcast is with Sebastian Stadil of Scalr. We talked about how to scale cloud computing. That may seem like a boring topic--after all, isn't the cloud supposed to be scalable? That's one of it's basic qualities, right? True, but it turns out that while scaling services via the cloud is relatively easy--if they've been architected right, managing that scale can produce some real problems.

Scalr is both a company and an open source project. We not only talk about the problems and solution of scaling cloud computing, but also how this hybrid business model works for a service. I enjoyed getting to know Sebastian and I hope you do too.
