More on Google Scalability Conference

The first Google Scalability Conference was held here in Seattle last weekend. Sadly, it was scheduled for the same weekend as Foo Camp, so I was not able to attend.

Fortunately, Microsoft blogger extraordinaire Dare Obasanjo made it to the conference and wrote up excellent and detailed notes on four of the talks:It looks like a very interesting conference. Sorry I missed it!

Supposedly, "all sessions will be available on YouTube and Google Video after the conference." So far, I was only able to find one talk there, "Building a Scalable Resource Management System for Grid Computing".

The others may show up on Google Video in a few days. If they do, I will update this post with links to them.

If you are interested in this conference, you might also be interested in a few ([1] [2] [3] [4] [5]) of my many older posts on large scale computing at Google that include links to other papers, presentations, and videos.

Update: Some other notes ([1] [2]) on the conference from Robin Harris at StorageMojo. [via Ewan Silver].

Update: Some more notes, this one from Fran├žois Schiettecatte.

Update: Torsten Curst posted notes as well and was particularly impressed with the Amazon talk. As Fran├žois Schiettecatte mentioned, a paper with at least some of the material from that talk, "Dynamo: Amazon's highly available key-value store", will be presented at the upcoming ACM Symposium on Operating System Principles.

Update: Dan Creswell has more details on the Amazon talk.

Update: Three more of the conference talks ([1] [2] [3]) are now available on Google Video.

Update: Two more of the conference talks ([1] [2]) on Google Video, including the one by Marissa Mayer.

Update: In a more recent post, "Google Scalability Conference talks available", I listed all the talks that are available to make it easier to watch them.
