Building a Fault Tolerant API with Hystrix

The API for Bodybuilding.com serves more than a hundred million API calls everyday across hundreds of servers. Learn how we use Hystrix to build a distributed system that is both fault and latency tolerant. We will discuss the bulkhead and circuit breaker patterns used by Hystrix to provide a resilient and fast API.

I've been at Bodybuilding.com for 5 years. I'm currently the Engineering Manager for our Community API teams. Our API does over 100 million requests every day, so we have a heavy focus on performance, scalability, and resiliency. Prior to joining Bodybuilding, I was an engineer at MarkMonitor, a domain registrar for large corporations including Google, Facebook and Yahoo.
