With today’s growth in web traffic, sticking with legacy technologies and monolithic architectures is no longer an option. Verizonwireless.com, with 2.4B interactions per year and growing, moved to Reactive architecture based commerce platform to remain available and responsive despite the bursty nature of heavy retail traffic. This is particularly true to support new product launches, such as the IPhone or handle sales rushes during Black Friday.
Introducing new technologies into a Fortune 15 is not without its challenges, including:
  • A natural aversion to risk and experimentation, when an existing solution is perceived to be working.
  • The need to understand and educate developers, operations and management on a completely different paradigm for architecting systems and writing code.
  • Inevitably falling into the many traps and anti-patterns that come with adopting reactive technologies
  • Moving towards a DevOps approach for delivering software with tighter integration between development and operations teams
In this session Keyur and Saurabh will talk about the key drivers leading to Verizon wireless dotcom move to Reactive technologies using Play and Akka. They will discuss how these new technologies were introduced in Verizon Wireless, including lessons learned along their implementation journey.
