Is the cloud cheaper, faster and more scalable? Perhaps not if you’re a startup with big ambitions like Adjust. Paul H. Muller, co-founder and CTO of mobile metrics firm Adjust talks about the how and why the company scaled its environment completely with hosted bare metal, not virtual cloud infrastructure. Adjust serves 600 million users per day with 242 physical machines and more than 8000 CPUs running on LeaseWeb’s bare metal infrastructure. This interesting talk takes you through both the technical and commercial benefits of dedicated servers compared with virtualised clouds. Everything from network latency to high memory and clustering are considered in Adjust’s cost model.
