Scaling the unscalable: Building the infrastructure for SWITCHdrive, an ownCloud installation for 100'000 users

SWITCHdrive is an ownCloud installation for up to 100'00 academic users in Switzerland. Jens-Christian shows the challenges and solutions the team met when building the infrastructure to scale to that many users. He touches on storage and database server design, general software and infrastructure architecture, changes to the code and has at least one or two war stories to share (and the scars to prove them).
