Monika Nawrot is an Engineering Manager based in Google Warsaw. Before Google she worked at IBM and AOL. Monika has international experience as she worked in Ireland, United Kingdom, and Australia. She has experience in developing distributed backend systems and large scale data processing. In her current role she leads a team of engineers responsible for mission-critical data replication service which supports major Google products.
You trust Google Cloud with your critical data, but did you know that Google relies on the same underlying storage infrastructure for its other businesses as well? That’s right, the same storage services that power Google Cloud also underpin Google’s most critical services.
Our home-grown copy service is the foundational storage system that takes care of data replication for availability and latency purposes. It supports a diverse range of workloads copying massive amounts of data between all Google data centres around the world.
In this talk, we will take a deeper look at the infrastructure behind the planet-scale replication service, discuss the challenges, and the approach taken to ensure that your data is geographically distributed for durability, availability, and latency purposes.
