My BarCamp Antwerp Presentation: “High Availability in IT = AAARGH”

Mattias Geniar, Sunday, September 12, 2010 - last modified: Thursday, September 14, 2017

Last Saturday, a BarCamp event was held in Antwerp, Linkeroever. Last year we sponsored the event, and I had a "free" ride without having to prepare anything. This year, I wanted to change that, by giving a presentation of my own.

I decided to talk about "High Availability" in IT, what it means to prepare systems that run 24/7, without going offline. In short; a cry for respect for what all ITers out there do -- keeping the world online.

Here's the presentation as served by SlideShare. Depending on where you work, this might be NSFW. ;)

Update: this presentation contains some NSFW content. I'm leaving them in because it's a mistake I made in 2010. I learned my lesson, I won't do that again -- but it feels wrong to change history and pretend I was never this stupid.

I had a great day, with some very interesting talks. I look forward to going again next year!

Nice presentation but you prolly want to get rid of the tits, we’ve moved on from that stuff now don’t you think?

Cheers,

Matt.

Totally agree, it’s a lesson I learned back in 2010 when I gave this talk. I’m not doing that again. ;-)
