PHP Dorset September meetup
Monday, 1 September 2014 from 18:05 to 19:00 (BST)
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
This month we have a talk from Ollie Lawson titled Tales from inside an ISP:
In 2006 a book seller popularised a concept from the 50s that has revolutionised the arena we work in. Although not the inventors of this technology Amazon has made large-scale computing bigger, faster and cheaper. In this era of multi-billion dollar data centres and everything-as-a-service is there a future for having your own “iron”?
The commoditisation of enterprise class hardware and software has meant that small scale organisations can have large scale infrastructure. Listen to how you can use all the tools at your disposal (yes, even DevOps) to get that hosting bill down and performance and security up.
If you want to attend the talk at the library you'll need to register for a ticket, but if you want to just join us at The Libertine for the social you won't need one.
We will be meeting at Westbourne library for the talk, then walking down the road to our usual haunt of The Libertine for post-talk drinks and dicussion
