Manage episode 352412631 series 2661796
Twitter is a social media platform that does some incredibly complex stuff when it comes to distributed systems engineering to keep the website up and running. Twitter has open sourced a lot of projects for others to use. Twitter created a fork of Memcached called Twemcache and also a fork of Redis to handle the caching issues. In this episode we talk to Yao Yue. Yao Yue is an expert in distributed systems and performance. She led the cache team at Twitter. Her most notable open-source project is Pelikan, a modular caching framework with the best performance and operator ergonomics in the domain of distributed caching. Pelikan is ideal for large scale deployment as well as cutting-edge research.
