Dealing with unprecedented scale during Covid-19

Covid-19 for some sites has meant a massive surge in traffic. Some of the health related sites that we look after at have experienced a 80x traffic increase over the last couple months.

This talk is about dealing with this scale of traffic, and what things you can do to help here.

Some of the things that will be discussed:

Horizontal scaling and getting this sized this the best
Database sizing and tuning
Redis tuning and gotchas
Minimising origin hits
CDN tuning
Building a culture of continuous improvement
The talk is aimed at anyone with performance in mind, from developers to devops, to sysadmins.
