Samba and the road to 100k users

Presented by Andrew Bartlett
Monday 4:15 p.m.–4:45 p.m.
Target audience: User


Samba4 (our Samba AD DC) is increasingly widly used and is becoming used at scale, and this talk will detail Samba's journey from 'wow, it works' to 'can we have 100,000 users please'.

Samba 4.5 brings significant improvement in our scale, to around 30,000 users, and this talk will look at how we got there, share some war stories along the way, and what we are doing to bring us up to the 100,000 size.
