Asana on How to Start Small and Scale Over Time

A nice blog post from Asana on How to Start Small and Scale Over Time:

Recently, we’ve made a series of changes to our data infrastructure that have all proven extremely valuable:

  • Investing in monitoring, testing, and automation to reduce fire-fighting
  • Moving from MySQL to Redshift for a scalable data warehouse
  • Moving from local log processing to Hadoop for scalable log processing
  • Introducing Business Intelligence tools to allow non-experts to answer their own data questions

Got this from Hadoop Weekly, Issue #95, 9 November 2014. It has many other valuable articles on scaling.
