The Instagram switch was the live migration of an enormousand enormously popularoperation. The service couldnt take any disruption, says Facebook engineer George Cabrera. Facebook wont say how many virtual machines were needed to run Instagram on Amazon, but it was in the thousands. And the service now stores over 20 billion digitals photos. The users are still in the same car they were in at the beginning of the journey, but weve swapped out every single part without them noticing.
