Facebook has grown into one of the largest sites on the Internet today
serving over 200 billion pages per month. The nature of social data
makes engineering a site for this level of scale a particularly
challenging proposition. In this presentation, I will discuss the
aspects of social data that present challenges for scalability and will
describe the the core architectural components and design principles
that Facebook has used to address these challenges. In addition, I will
discuss emerging technologies that offer new opportunities for building
cost-effective high performance web architectures.

Jeff Rothschild is Vice President of Technology at Facebook, where he
focuses on scalability and performance. Prior to Facebook, Jeff focused
on storage management and Internet services as an investor and
entrepreneur. He previously co-founded Veritas Software, where he was
responsible for product strategy and architecture. Jeff also co-founded
Mpath Interactive/Hearme, the Internet multiplayer games and voice chat
service, where he served as Vice President of Engineering. He is also a
consulting partner with Accel Partners and during his tenure has worked
with Walmart.com, Rhapsody Networks and Mendocino Software. Jeff holds a
bachelor's degree in psychology and a master's degree in computer
science from Vanderbilt University.
