How Expedia Uses NGINX for Cloud Migration at Scale

Sep 2016

This session is a detailed look at what Expedia has learned from using NGINX to ease the migration of applications to the cloud. Specifically, I’ll examine how to avoid “knife-edge” cutovers by building resiliency into your migration strategy and adding a fail-safe for migrated applications during the cutover. I’ll share:

  • Design patterns and code that show how to migrate traffic without a knife-edge cutover
  • How to use health checks across regions to make your migration more resilient
  • How to use the NGINX error handler to build fail-safe mechanisims
