Resiliency expert reviews Major Facebook Outage (Restore it All Podcast #137)

Bob Plankers, resiliency specialist from VMware, joins us on this week’s podcast, as we examine last year’s major Facebook outage that took out Facebook, WhatsApp, and Instagram all at once. We discuss what we believe happened, just how bad it got, and our thoughts as to what we can learn from this huge outage. This isn’t schadenfreude, and we acknowledge that we are Monday morning quarterbacking. It’s an attempt to LEARN from the misfortunes of others – not to take joy in them. Solid discussion with @plankers.
