Erlang Factory SF Bay Area 2012

The Erlang/OTP programming model and framework is a boon to developers trying to build robust, scalable servers. Immutable data structures, lightweight processes and message passing in lieu of shared state all encourage healthy server designs with predictable operational characteristics. Cloudant builds and operates a global network of database servers based on a heavily customized flavor of Apache CouchDB called BigCouch. I'll provide a view of our Data Layer through an Erlang/OTP lens and show how various pieces of the stack -- from the storage subsystem up to global data replication -- mirror the essential elements of a typical Erlang application.
