Let’s reminisce about stackconf 2023, which brought many insights, first-hand expert knowledge and inspiring ideas. In this blog series, we introduce you to our keynote speakers and their presentations at stackconf.
The next suggestion by Frank Karlitschek, „Scaling a Collaboration Service like Nextcloud to 20 Million users“ deals with the scaling of Nextcloud instances across different hosting centers.
A Short Summary of the Topic
Frank highlights the increasing centralization of user data by large US companies and advocates retaining control over personal data, protecting privacy and avoiding dependence on a few providers. To achieve these goals, open source, self-hosted and federated alternatives are recommended. He emphasizes that the internet and web are based on a distributed architecture and cloud services should follow this model. The talk presents an example of how a Nextcloud instance with 20 million users can be scaled across different hosting centers and continents. Both conceptual approaches and concrete implementations of Kubernetes, Ceph and MariaDB Clustering will be presented.
