Don't Miss Out! HighLoad++ Armenia Ticket Prices Set to Rise on October 10
Mark your calendars! On December 14-15 we will meet again in Yerevan at HighLoad++ Armenia 2023. This year's event promises to be a melting pot of ideas, innovations, and invaluable connections.
Starting from October 10, ticket prices will increase. So you can book your tickets now to pay less later.
What to expect?
- 700+ participants ready to dive into the world of high-load technologies.
- 40+ Engaging Talks spread across 3 tracks.
- Activities in the exhibition zone.
- The best IT party of the year.
HighLoad++ Armenia isn't just about absorbing knowledge. With ample networking opportunities, you'll have the chance to interact with fellow professionals and industry experts.
And now let us introduce our speakers and tell a couple words about their talks.
Talks accepted into the HighLoad++ Armenia program
In his session Tejas Chopra (Netflix) will throw light on how they design a media aware and optimized transfer, storage and presentation layer for data. By leveraging this architecture at Netflix scale, they provide a scalable, reliable, and optimized backend layer for media data.
Most of the data generated, transferred and stored at Netflix is very media specific, for example, raw camera footage, or data generated as a result of encoding and rendering for different screen types.
Major takeaways from this talk:
- Learn about the challenges of designing a scalable object storage layer for data while adhering to the file system POSIX semantics of media applications
- Learn about the optimizations applied to reduce cloud storage footprint, such as chunking, deduplication
- Learn about how different applications expect data to be presented at different locations and in different formats.
Alexander Gilevich (EPAM) will tell you a story… It all started with a simple idea of building connectors, they ended up building fully configurable and massively scalable data ingestion pipelines which deliver disparate data pieces to a single data lake for their later decomposition and digestion in a multi-tenant environment. All while allowing customers and business analysts to create and configure their own ingestion pipelines in a friendly way with a bespoke pipeline designer with each pipeline building block being a separate decoupled microservice (think Airflow, AWS Step Functions, Azure Data Factory and Azure Logic Apps). Furthermore, Alexander will touch on such aspects as choreography vs orchestration, incremental loading strategies, ingestion of access control policies (ABAC, RBAC, ACLs), parallel data processing, how frameworks can help in the implementation of cross-cutting concerns, and even briefly talk about the benefits of knowledge graphs.
Modern distributed databases scale horizontally with great efficiency, making them almost limitless in capacity. This implies that benchmarks should be able to run on multiple machines and be very efficient to minimize the number of machines required. Evgenii Ivanov’s talk will focus on benchmarking high-performance databases, with a particular emphasis on YDB and our implementation of the TPC-C benchmark — the de-facto gold standard in the database field.
Firstly, we will speak about benchmarking strategies from a user's perspective. We will dive into key details related to benchmark implementations, which could be useful when you create a custom benchmark to mirror your production scenarios.
Secondly, we’ll briefly discuss the popular key-value benchmark YCSB, which we believe is a prerequisite for robust performance in distributed transactions. Following this, we'll explore the TPC-C benchmark in greater detail, sharing valuable insights derived from our own implementation.
We'll conclude our talk by presenting performance results from YCSB and TPC-C benchmarks, comparing YDB's performance with that of CockroachDB and YugabyteDB — other trusted and well-known distributed SQL databases.
The Program Committee is receiving speaker submissions until October 10. If you have something to tell the community, submit your talk. All details under the link.
See you at the conference!
