Nowadays, everything works in the cloud. However, what does it really mean? Even the most ambitious buzzword guerillas probably don’t know the term „high availability“. The key feature of the cloud is not its ability to run a single-instance of a web application on virtualized hardware, but to provide distributed highly available web services.
In the first part of my presentation, I will show you how to get a Symfony app ready for the cloud by a practice-orientiented example.
The second part is about how to build, monitor and manage a high-availability cluster, what zero-downtime-deployment means and what we should do, when the cloud turns into a thunderstorm. We welcome all Symfony enthusiasts out there, though developers and DevOps probably will benefit the most.
