We have the agenda to help the online datastores and rest of Stripe product teams achieve five 9’s of availability, enable high read throughput, reduce read latencies, scale up to millions of requests per second, be compliant and secure and build infrastructure which can work in spite of regional failures. Some of the technologies that we work with include Go, Java, memcached, AWS EC2 and Python.
