At Peytz & Co / IP Group we host Drupal for some large scale media clients receiving thousands and thousands of pageviews all the time and with up to 50 editors working around the clock. That puts a lot of demand on the speed and availability of your hosting solution. 

This talk will be about our experience with different providers and technologies for doing this. I will talk about the pros and cons about choosing a cloud solution like Amazon or Google Cloud compared with traditional hosting providers or doing it yourself. I will take concrete examples from how we work and why we are aiming towards docker and ansible as technologies for deploying and running a large scale drupal platform. Ansible is a new techonology that could take the place of puppet and capistrano (or other deployment tools) for orchestrating drupal hosting.
