Modern, Reliable, Repeatable: The New Relic Datacenter Transformation Story (APAC)


Implementing modern cloud tools. Transforming architectures. Embracing new practices. No matter the mandate, staying technologically competitive can feel overwhelming. And what do you do when you’ve outgrown your first datacenter or cloud region? Fear not: This type of radical organisational shift is achievable with the right amount of shared vision, technical prowess, and trust.

Sean Kane, Lead Site Reliability Engineer, shares how we modernised our legacy infrastructure at New Relic. Learn how we transformed our very first datacenter into a modern, reliable, and repeatable system for generating globally scalable regions, with details on:

  • The challenges of modernising and automating core infrastructure at a global scale

  • How our very small engineering team implemented a plan that would take New Relic from a single US datacenter to multiple global instances with multiple providers

  • What we learned and some key results—including how we saw a 90% reduction in engineering hours and 25% reduction in operating expenses for our annual disaster recovery exercises.
