About the Event
Modern web services such as Facebook are made up of hundreds of systems running in geographically-distributed data centers. Each system needs to be allocated capacity, configured, and tuned to use data center resources efficiently. Keeping a model of capacity allocation current is challenging given that user behavior and software components evolve constantly.
Mike Chow is a software engineer at Facebook working on building systems for testing the performance and efficiency of backend systems. He recently received his Ph.D. from the University of Michigan in 2016.
