Hosting sports websites and automating SixNations – Dilwyn Reynold @ PHP South Wales


    Dilwyn Reynolds is one of the DevOps Engineers at Sotic. Earlier this year Sotic built, hosted and managed the SixNations website. As a company they love a challenge so they also did the Welsh Ruby Union and Irish Rugby Union sites all at the same time. Because the sites have live scoring and constantly updating news stories they couldn’t just cache everything. In this talk Dilwyn is going to work though how they handled the traffic, how they cached different parts of the sites in different ways and how they got through the whole SixNations with no public downtime even with massive traffic spikes.
