Tech Stack

At the core of Egnyte Connect service is a Distributed File System and as with any other File System, the most common user operations include listing folders and uploading/downloading files. Our monitoring tools indicate that as the adoption of newer Desktop App clients increases, the average list folder performance went up from 50 milliseconds(ms) to 70ms in some data center zones (we call them Pods). In the past few months, we’ve made scalability enhancements to fix this and to also handle the next growth spurt, without adding much additional hardware. Now, 70ms is not a bad response time for list folder API, but if it’s called 100-200 million times, then that number can go up quickly. Even a 10ms improvement in performance can save 1-2 billion ms a day. How do you optimize something that is already fast? Well, sometimes ideas cross-pollinate when working on unrelated problems. Some relevant scalability enhancements we worked on include: - Reduction of response size - Primary key change in file system tables - Check files first and then folder
