Abstract: We will discuss the architecture and design decisions made in building and scaling a SaaS web application with the goal of 100% uptime for our users. This touches all layers of the application stack, including network and infrastructure, data storage and distribution, and both server and client-side application logic. Grokking the entire environment lets us build a real-time fault-tolerant application that doesn’t require massive resources, as we will present. We will also share some obstacles we’ve faced and our solutions, and some of the new challenges we are currently solving.
