Presenter: Kingsum Chow
The emergence of large-scale software deployments in the data center has led to several challenges:
- Measuring software performance in the data center
- Optimizing software for resource management
We will share a few techniques that we developed to tackle some of these challenges. This session will describe how we compose common tools to develop solutions in our data center.
