Scribe: The 15-Year Evolution of Meta’s Data Transport Service

Meta's hardware infrastructure comprises millions of machines, all of which generate data. The overall traffic generated reaches several petabytes every hour, while its processing typically takes place somewhere other than where it was originally generated. The task of collecting, aggregating, and delivering this traffic volume (with low latency and high throughput) requires a systematic approach.
