Software as a Service (SaaS)

Designing systems that can scale to very large sizes is a challenge. The requirements are demanding or become so very quickly. Commercial success of your product is also a two-edged sword. 

  • Will your architecture handle the initial demand?
  • How quickly can you expand resources to meet new demand?
  • Are you paying way too much money to an OS or database vendor?
  • How quickly will you need to duplicate your NOC/SOC?

I put together a slide deck discussing some of these issues for a small-group presentation a few weeks ago. I have posted the slides here because I wanted to share those thoughts.
