So much of what we do every day is carried out online, including working, learning, shopping and streaming entertainment. Imagine the sheer volume of data and interactions handled every day by platforms such as Amazon, Google or TikTok.

Designing robust, scalable infrastructure capable of handling today’s heavy loads comes with new and broader challenges that can’t be conquered through the methods of previous decades. Below, 18 members of Forbes Technology Council discuss key considerations for architects building systems to manage heavy loads and how today’s digital highway design must evolve from that of traditional systems.
Design and build from the standpoint of “everything breaks and cascades.” Netflix really changed the way we think about architectures with Chaos Monkey, a testing tool in the realm of chaos engineering.
