Shutterstock was founded in 2003 before AWS or the advent of consumer cloud technologies. Over the years Shutterstock has scaled significantly and needed to solve specific challenges of low latency, high volume deployment, the shift to services architecture, high performance databases transactions, unstructured data, and requiring PBs of storage. The infrastructure at Shutterstock is unique, embracing strong expertise in systems management and design as well as high levels of distributed networking pricipals (anycast, ospf, bgp). This talk will be focused on the design concepts of building a custom cloud with shared operational responsibility between your engineering and operations teams, as well as discussion on theory of building the right type of teams for modern infrastructure platforms.
