You may not scale often, but when you scale, please drink HighScalability:

Akamai: - 95,811 Servers, 1,000 Networks, 70 Countries .

Quotably quotable quotes:

@ segphault : Linus talking about the kernel's scalability. Beneficial to have one kernel used from embedded to high-end bc improvements span use cases.

@ russferriday : Just completed a proposal for a rare bird data gathering system using # CouchDB *and* # Cassandra. Nice project. # NoSQL

Later, after some first exposure to CouchDB, we decided to use it instead. It was gaining some traction, and we had good access to local community support.

After we hit a wall with our first attempt at using a custom storage layer, we rewrote it to support CouchDB. Slightly different semantics made some things harder to rewrite, and some things were quite awkward to handle, in particular when trying to map an ActiveRecord-like query model on top of a database that requires you to define …

Anyway, I'll miss my whole CouchDB and Couchbase odyssey immensely. I know it's a rare thing to have helped create and lead the things I did. I don't take it for granted. It was a hell of a ride.

And now what's next? Well, beginning in January 2014 I'll be starting at salesforce.com and working closely with Pat Helland on a project that eventually will underpin huge amounts of their site infrastructure, improving performance, reliability and predictability, while …

Simple. But what do you do in CouchDB?

CouchDB

My documents look like this: { "_id": "hash", "project": "github-user/repo/branch", "deploy_time": { "date": "2013-10-04 22:02:20", /* ... */ }, /* ... */ }

Here's the view's map function: function (doc) { if (doc.project) { …

…cookbooks, your node definitions with their run lists, and your roles are in Chef 10's CouchDB. And Chef 11 all that data is in PostgreSQL. One thing's for sure, this ain't no file copy.

Today we'll use the knife-essentials plugin to download everything as JSON from the old Chef server, and then upload it all to the new Chef server. Because Chef 11 is REST API-compatible with Chef 10, the knife plugin works against both, and we'll exploit …

…you an idea, my job description mentions Rails, Merb, Sinatra, CouchdB, MongoDB, Redis, AWS. All these Ruby technologies are actually already used in production or are being seriously evaluated.

I'm also really looking forward to join the existing team. I know I'm going to love working with a bunch of awesome developers coming from various backgrounds.

Those who know me, know that I'm not a morning person. And while your typical office job is categorized as ‘9-5′, …
