GPF 14 – Network Disaster Recovery

Network Disaster Recovery

Matt Jansen, Facebook

We have worked in the last few years to grow our global footprint at a fast pace, building POPs and deploying Caches to connect to multiple ISPs around the world so People can access content reliably and with the best performance. Part of providing the best performance is to be prepared and to continue providing access to Facebook’s family of applications during disasters with zero impact to Users.

This presentation provides an overview of the importance of being prepared for a major disaster on the Edge of Facebook’s network, that could impact Peoples’ experience, focusing our efforts on having an understanding how our infrastructure would react under these circumstances and defining the metrics, tools and improvements needed.
