About this Episode

The fifth episode of The New Stack @ Scale podcast, our monthly program sponsored by New Relic that examines the various issues that accompany dynamic services and systems, explored a scaling success story that is a case study in DevOps challenges and perseverance.

The New Stack founder Alex Williams and co-host Fredric Paul, New Relic’s Editor-in-Chief, were joined by Tung Nguyen, VP of Engineering at Bleacher Report. In this wide-ranging and informative discussion, you’ll hear Nguyen describe B/R’s incredible journey from outgrowing “awful” blog software running on a single VM, to becoming a leading sports-oriented digital property that brings in more than 80 million uniques per month.

Also on hand was Lee Atchison, who provided perspective with his experiences in scaling at New Relic (as its Principal Cloud Architect and Advocate), as well as his time at AWS, where he created Elastic Beanstalk and led the team that managed the migration of Amazon’s retail platform from a monolith to a SOA-based architecture.
