Andreas (aka Andi) Grabner and Brian Wilson are veterans of the digital performance world. Combined they have seen too many applications not scaling and performing up to expectations. With more rapid deployment models made possible through continuous delivery and a mentality shift sparked by DevOps they feel it’s time to share their stories. In each episode, they and their guests discuss different topics concerning performance, ranging from common performance problems for specific technology platforms to best practices in development, testing, deploying and monitoring software performance and user experience. Be prepared to learn a lot about metrics.
Andi & Brian both work at Dynatrace, where they get to witness more real-world customer performance issues than they can TPS report at.
Did you know that the JVM has 700+ configuration settings? Did you know that MongoDB performance can be improved by 50% just by tuning the right database and OS nobs? Every thought that slower I/O can actually speed up database transaction times?
In this episode we invited Stefano Doni, CTO at Amakas.io, who gives us a new perspective on how to approach performance optimization for complex environments. Instead of manually tweaking nobs on all sorts of runtimes or services they developed a Goal-driven AI-engine that automatically identifies the optimal settings for any application as it is under load. Make sure to check out their website and white papers where they go into details about how their algorithms work, which metrics they optimize and how you can apply their technology into a continuous delivery process
PurePerformance Cafes are short interviews with practitioners and thought leaders from around the globe. We found it a great way to get introduced to a new topic or just learn what others are doing in their day-to-day job to contribute to better quality and high performing software.
