My name is Dave Koopman. I am a software developer, engineer, systems architect and hosting performance guru. I run a software development team at GoDaddy called Hosting Performance.
My team and I (and all our coworkers at GoDaddy) care deeply about availability and performance of our Hosting products. With millions of customers and thousands of servers, the goal isn’t to be “the fastest”, although, in most cases, it turns out that way. The goal is all about consistency of the experience. We want every customer to have the same consistent customer experience, from sales through setup, to customer support, the UI experience, and best of breed availability and performance.
We’re working every day to provide an awesome experience to all our customers, from the biggest fortune 500 to the millions of small businesses.
The Hosting Performance team measures and reports performance of GoDaddy hosting products. The Hosting Operations team has a branch dedicated to performance. It’s their job to consume the Hosting Performance monitoring reports and respond to performance incidents, as they occur. We pay close attention, set goals centered on measurable KPIs, and quickly detect and respond. This leads to extraordinary consistency with our hosting product availability and performance.
This is a personal blog and opinions are of my own and not necessarily that of my employer.
