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.
