LinkedIn Is Migrating To Microsoft Azure

An anonymous reader writes: LinkedIn today announced it is swapping out its data centers for the public cloud. The Microsoft-owned company is moving its infrastructure to Azure as part of a multi-year migration. VentureBeat sat down with Mohak Shroff, LinkedIn’s SVP of engineering, to discuss one of the biggest technological transformations in the company’s history. LinkedIn plans to migrate its 645 million members over several years so as not to compromise the site’s accessibility, reliability, and performance. “We think probably at least three years till we’re done, possibly longer than that,” Shroff confirmed. “It will be a gradual migration. We’ll see increasing workloads on Azure over time, with a pretty significant inflection point, about a year and a half, two years out from now. And then kind of an accelerated migration post that.”
