Imagine you’re the ops on call and you are just getting home, unloading the groceries when you get a paged. Before you can react, you get paged again. And again. Forget the groceries, forget your evening. Production is on fire.
Sound like your worst nightmare? Well, it happens more often than we’d like to admit. And at Outbrain, one such time lead to a far reaching decision that changed how they do networking from end to end.
Outbrain is the world’s leading Discovery platform, serving 250 billion content recommendations every month to the readers of CNN, The Guardian, Time Inc and more. Their infrastructure grew exponentially In just a few years, now reaching over 500 million people worldwide. All this has meant that their need for network automation, scalability and performance has become paramount.
Join our webinar to hear Alex Balk, leader of Core Services at Outbrain, tell the story of Outbrain’s journey to scale its network, architect for reliability and add visibility where they’d never even imagined. Alex will dive into what Outbrain’s network looked like before the transformation, their compelling reasons to change and how (and why!) they’d built a Layer 3 Clos Fabric running BGP end-to-end using Cumulus Networks.
