Nurturing a growing web service, by Björn Carlson, Chief Architect, Klarna

Abstract

Why is scaling out hard? How does this break in practice? Klarna is expanding its services by introducing a service-oriented architecture while nurturing its existing system. We will discuss some of the challenges with this. For example, growing a 24x7 system is hard. Especially, in the hyper-competitive space of mobile payments.
