Geek Reading April 28, 2015

Wired starts our day with an interesting story about how our satellites can be used for mapping earthquakes. Following on that we have a few good scalability articles. On, we get to read about lessons learned working on large-scale server software. This article also gives us the best quote on distributed systems that I have seen:

If you can avoid making parts of your system distributed, avoid it. It’s leaving the comfort of your home to step into a rain of fire.

High Scalability talks about how we can build better complex systems, using containers, microservices and continuous delivery. Lastly, Leandro Moreira gives us the architecture of the 2014 FIFA World Cup live streaming.

As always, enjoy today’s items, and please participate in the discussions on these sites.
