Jordan Nielsen, Senior Storage Architect @ Ancestry.com
Ancestry.com, is using OpenStack Swift to store over three billion records with over 200 million user generated image files growing at 25% annually. Ancestry chose Swift to ensure easy and rapidly accessible data from any web servers hosting Ancestry’s family history websites, and to provide easy access for developers without compromising on availability.
In this session, Jordan Nielsen, Senior Storage Architect at Ancestry.com will talk through the move from traditional hardware based scale-out NAS to Swift Object Storage. Jordan will cover Ancestry.com’s decision making process, and the criterion used to base their decision to move. He will also walk through how Ancestry.com is using Swift, and give some insight into what’s next with their deployment.
