The limit is 3 minutes per speaker. It's like a lightning talk, but don't feel that you have to have slides in order to make a presentation. If you plan on showing a video, you need to contact the Air Mozilla team before the day of the meeting or you will be deferred to the next week.

IT

Speaker Location: San Francisco

60 Seconds with IT for 1/13/2014:

• On Saturday we moved the tegra (Android 2.2) infrastructure from MTV to one of our Santa Clara datacenters. Thanks to amazing efforts by the team, we were able to complete the entire takedown/back online cycle in 8 hours - a fraction of the budgeted 48.

• All of the android 2.2 mobile infrastructure is now in an environment with higher availability and faster recovery time.

• This move also marks the last significant chunk of releng infrastructure out of the MTV, which paves the way for us being able to move to the new office without a tree closing interruption to developers.

• We're now running a locally caching resolver on every system in our data centers, this will reduce the load on our internal dns services and increase the reliability of services that depend on dns.

• migration of volumes (some IT internal, but all of the product delivery volumes) to new, bigger, better, faster, clustered filer, which should allow us to keep running with fewer disruptions in the future.

• SSH access to PaaS apps is now working with the Mozilla datacenter VPN, providing easy and reliable developer shell access to their application instances.

The benefits of all this to you? - Higher availably - Faster recovery time - More reliable services
