In this 1-hour presentation at the High Performance Drupal meetup on April 3, 2012, Kevin Colligan (@kevincolligan) of the Recording Academy (@TRAlosangeles) presents a performance- and scalability-focused case study on GRAMMY.com.

This video describes the current setup used for GRAMMY.com to keep it fast and stable — Pressflow and Master/Slave databases, Drupal's built-in cache mechanisms, Akamai and Content Delivery Networks, Varnish load balancing and reverse proxies, Memcache and other tricks.

At the end, the presentation featured questions and answers from the audience, and an idea of what GRAMMY.com performance and scalability will look like in the future.

About High Performance Drupal

What is the High Performance Drupal meetup about? The "high performance" part of the name is a catch-all to describe Drupal scalability, performance and benchmarking but we also discuss hosting, infrastructure, deployment, monitoring and highly repeatable processes. Also, this meetup has been held at coffeeshops in the past and the addition of caffeine makes our meetings feel as if they go faster and faster as the night goes on.

This is an meetup that focuses exclusively on advanced topics and there will not be a Users Helping Users portion to the evening.
