Presentation: Wix Architecture at Scale

Track: Design to Exceed the Limit - High Scalable Architectures / Time: Friday 16:50 - 17:40 / Location: Fleming

When over 40M users host their website on Wix we need to handle both large scale traffic, lots of data and also to be highly available (after all we can’t let 40M websites to have down-time).

At Wix we handle over 700M HTTP requests per day to serve and edit websites.

In this talk I will go over Wix's architecture, how we evolved our system to be highly available even at the worst case scenarios when everything can break, how we built a self-healing eventual consistency system for website data distribution and will show some of the patterns we use that helps us render lots of websites while maintaining a relatively low number of servers.
