Avito: where your classifieds belong
Duration 45 min
Previously, we have explained the internals of Avito, discussed, where and how we store your classifieds, and how they appear on the search results. In the recent 3-4 a lot has changed in Avito. We got rid of logical replication, stopped using standby servers for reads, removed nearly all stored procedures and our custom failover solution, migrated all our classifieds into a sharded DBMS, switched from the monolith app to microservices. I'll explain why we made such decisions, list some of the problems we encountered and describe the current state of our development process.
