In this talk, I will demonstrate how analyzing large datasets from
different organizations helped us uncover interesting (and often surprising) patterns in the behavior of systems and applications in these largescale platforms. I will show how realworld data helped us tackle critical questions such as how does temperature impact
server reliability in places like Google, or how well do users configure the computing jobs they submit to shared clusters (spoiler alert: not very well!). Finally, I will demonstrate how simple machine learning techniques can be leveraged to accurately predict job
failures in datacenters, while using data that is easily collected in current platforms.
