Building a stable and performant Distributed System requires careful planning, design, and implementation. The real challenge with distributed system, however, starts after system is built and rolled out. End users and system administrators spend a lot of time, far more than development time, using and operating the system. Thus providing ease-of-use and easy-to-operate for both users and system administrators is a critical must-have feature for any distributed system.
In this talk, I will present Nuage, LinkedIn’s private cloud management portal, built to bring ease-of-use and operability to LinkedIn’s Distributed Data systems. We will go over why LinkedIn made investment in Cloud Management, list of features and benefits Nuage brings to application developers and platform administrators, and the future investments we are making.
