What really happens when you type el.wikipedia.org

At the Wikimedia Foundation, we are running the world’s favourite encyclop√¶dia and one of the top 10 websites of the Internet. In this talk we will take a tour around Wikipedia’s infrastructure.

We will explain how requests flow through our systems, and how we manage to serve ~17 bn pageviews monthly with a little over ~1200 servers. Moreover, will go through our history, our transition to service oriented architecture and microservices, and briefly discuss our ongoing journey in migrating to Kubernetes.
