Performance in the Wild West: Keeping your site fast and safe in the world of hackers & DDoS


Building a high-performance Drupal web application is only half the battle. Now you need to deliver that application to your end users in a less than perfect Internet--full of bot traffic and DDoS attacks.  This presentation will provide a playbook of the challenges you may face and strategies for outmaneuvering them. What is the difference between a volumetric and application-level DDoS and how should they be handled differently? How can you leverage a CDN to both speed up your website and take the brunt of crawler traffic - keeping your precious app server resources focused on paying customers? Learn what to look out for and what cutting-edge capabilities for your Drupal platform like SNI, SPDY, TLS session resumption, and DNSSec.
