As an innovative technology company that operates the largest digital media, content, and communications business in the world, Yahoo! has built computer architectures of huge scale and complexity. This talk describes some of the challenges of operating products used by more than 600 million people, and architectural approaches at different tiers: hardware and network infrastructure; cloud infrastructure; consumer and advertising platforms. Topics covered include how Yahoo! uses its Hadoop clusters for large-scale computation, reducing complexity in user data stores, and the perils of a hidden exponential algorithm.
