Building Highly Distributed, Resilient Systems At Velocity UK

Third time's the charm, and as such we're excited to be sponsoring and exhibiting at our third and final Velocity for 2017 in London! If you've never heard of Velocity before and are involved in building applications -- this is the conference for you. Velocity is all about practical application delivery performance, application architectures, and DevOps methodologies for building fast, scalable, and resilient applications. This year's focus is on building resilient, highly distributed systems.

Hey, we're talkin' here!

Make sure to catch our own Shannon Weyrick's talk entitled "DDoS War Games: Strengthen Your Team & Systems By Attacking Them". This talk will highlight the essential nature of DDoS drills, and using the feedback to continually improve process around mitigating all manner of infrastructure anomalies.

Come for the SWAG, stay for the knowledge...

Make sure to stop by our booth to meet some of the fine folks from the NS1 team where we'll be answering your questions and discussing:

  • Simplifying DNS management and achieving DNS redundancy for mission critical applications
  • Combining DNS and traffic management to get an edge in performance
  • How our cloud-based routing engine, Pulsar™, uses real-time performance data for intelligent routing
  • Best practices in building a globally distributed application

You don't want to miss our giveaway. One lucky winner will be going home with a sweet pair of Bose QC35 Bluetooth Noise-Canceling Headphones! We will scan your badge to get you in the running.

If you want to beat the crowd to the booth and schedule up a time to talk shop, let us know and we'll be there!
