“One Daily, One Topic” is the group of posts where we’ll share the topics that we talk during the lasts sprints. Besides, our Director of Engineering, Félix López, will comment why they’ve selected these papers and the link to find them. You can also follow the engineering team in Twitter at @ShuttleCloudEng.
Differences between Graphs that Manage Connections on the Internet
“The global mapping of everybody and how they’re related.” With these words, the famous programmer Brad Fitzpatrick defined a concept that has become one of the most important elements in the short story of the Internet: the social graph.
Few months before, during the first edition of the Facebook Developer Conference (Facebook F8), Mark Zuckerberg had attributed the power of Facebook to the “social graph, the network of connections and relationships between people on the service.” Eight years later, the Facebook social graph (The Graph API) is one of the biggest… but it isn’t alone.
After the successful workshop Cassandra held in our offices, David and Jerónimo proposed to host an Ansible workshop. It’s no secret that ShuttleCloud uses Ansible for managing its infrastructure, thus we think it would be useful to explain on how we use it.
We expect to have the workshop in the beginning of next year. Stay tuned!
The engineering team of ShuttleCloud has started a new habit during the daily meetings. The day before, a member of the team proposes a technical paper or article that should be reading for the rest of the team. The next daily, they talk over the technical paper. Analyzing what they’ve learned or if they have some doubts.
From ShuttleCloud, we wish you a Happy Halloween 2015!
Importing 1.2 million contacts and 48 million emails every day to Gmail
At ShuttleCloud, a fast-growing start-up, our challenge has been to develop the most efficient platform architecture to import billions of messages or email contacts for our major customers, including Gmail, Comcast, and Time Warner Cable.
ShuttleCloud moves more than 400 million contacts per year, close to 35 billion emails. This functionality is available to all Gmail users, a total of 900 million users. Having important clients means really demanding SLAs (Service-Level Agreements), up to 99.5% in some cases.
EmailMeter.io’s MVP is ready to use. It’s online. As a good MVP, many things can be improved, new metrics will be added, and more details will be analyzed when we receive user feedback. We are very proud, however, that we have a first version online and ready to test by the user.
