  • Description

    How did Salesforce scale their JSS and how can you do the same? In this session, see how Salesforce went from a single Tomcat and MySQL VM running Windows Server 2008 that supported a few thousand Macs to three Tomcat VM's, MySQL VM and Load Balancer that now supports 20,000 Macs, all on Red Hat. Get the scoop on load balancer configuration and JSS settings, and how they impact database size and performance.

    Ben Marks

    A former Mac Genius for 6 years, Ben secretly exploited loopholes in Apple Education Assistance to take all of Apple's IT classes and certifications at the time for free (Support Essentials, Server Essentials, Directory Services and Advanced Administration, Xsan Administration and Final Cut Server.) This led to his first system administrator job and his first Casper exposure, managing a 120 Mac environment located on a 25 acre campus hidden away on the coast in Big Sur, California. The internet was beamed in from 12 miles away via microwave radios and the job interview asked questions about his comfort level getting into a harness to inspect radio antennas. From there, he moved to Salesforce as a Client Engineer, where he currently manages their Casper infrastructure and where he witnessed explosive Mac growth from 4,500 Macs/40% population in year one to 20,000 Macs/70% of population currently in year three.
