Lessons learned by running LogDevice in prod

Audience:
Topic:

LogDevice was built from scratch at Facebook and at some point we started running in prod. During this process some things didn't go as expected and I call those things learnings. From the many many things I learned I'm taking the ones that were more far away from what I would have expected.

This talk will not give any insight on LogDevice technolgy nor how to run it, is about general topics and practices that can be used, I believe, for anything production engineering.

The learnings include:

- Ops Oncall

- Communication

- Customer onboarding

- Open Source

- Physical data placement

- Source of truth

- Hack it until your fix it
