  • PagerDutyCutting Response Time in Half while Increasing our Support Ticket Volume- PagerDuty explains the tools and processes they implemented to improve their support ticket response time. After setting an internal SLA of two hours for ticket responses, they used PagerDuty to escalate tickets if they weren't responded to, and hooked this into HipChat so tickets could be discussed. They then used Zendesk to measure customer satisfaction via email and used GoodData to build dashboards for these metrics (they even open-sourced the dashboard). They also mentioned that they use Olark for live chat and JIRA for communication between teams and filing bugs.

  • SoundCloudScaling Rails, Part I: Dealing with the Monolith SoundCloud now has 12 hours of music and sound uploaded every minute, and hundreds of millions of people using their platform every day. In this post, they explain how they scaled their monolithic Rails app; their codebase went from being a single Rails app backed by memcached and MySQL, to a microservices architecture written in Scala, Clojure, and JRuby. They ended up consuming their own Public API, just like 3rd party services, but with some important differences including an additional internal API. They also list out the components they've open sourced on their road to scaling the Rails app.
