Hi Brian,

Happy New Year, and hoping you're well!

On February 13, Pete Emerson who spoke at your DevOps and Puppet meetups
in May will be giving a talk at AppNexus called "Load Balancers at High
Scale: A Disappearing Act," and I thought your meetup members might be
interested in attending.

Pete will discuss how AppNexus hit a brick wall with our load balancers
and, over the course of a weekend, ripped them out and replaced them a
high-scaling, cost-effective solution. He will dive into the architecture
of our in-house built system which combines GSLB and Keepalived with a
custom back end to support them.

We'll be serving pizza and beers from 6:30pm to 7pm, and Pete's talk will
start at 7pm.

The event is free, and anyone can RSVP here:
