-Shobana Radhakrishnan Engineering Manager for Video Metadata Platforms at Netflix
-Adrian Cockcroft Director Architecture, Cloud Systems at Netflix
Netflix has emerged as a leading example of a large scale cloud native architecture, heavily leveraging cloud infrastructure for business critical data. With over 1 petabyte of data in the cloud, their Video Metadata Platform serves over 100 billion requests a day, presenting videos to over 36 million customers across 50 countries and territories. Netflix has also been releasing open source components and has even sponsored a cloud prize for contributions to NetflixOSS. Key to their success: loosely coupled, tightly aligned culture.
Join this webinar to hear Shobana discuss the migration of all persistent storage and the heavily distributed middleware to the cloud; managing moving parts and cross-functional teams without impact to their algorithms, website, devices or other user-facing applications; developing extended displays for original content; and supporting international growth.
Adrian addresses how the Netflix product and platform works. He’ll discuss the organizational structures that support innovation, empowering engineers and managers and allowing for rapid decision making on the local level, while also reducing barriers to new idea generation.
