Netflix: “Moving to the cloud is hard” | JAX DevOps
Getting started on AWS is easy, but building a scalable, reliable, and performant product in the cloud can be a challenge for startups and enterprises alike. Netflix has famously migrated all its services to the cloud. Along the way, they have open-sourced large portions of their platform that helped make this a reality.
In this talk, Mike McGarr, manager of Netflix Developer Productivity, will provide a survey of the Netflix OSS products available. Mike will also share patterns and lessons Netflix learned migrating to the cloud. This talk will cover tools such as Nebula, Aminator and Spinnaker. Lastly, Mike will leave you with a roadmap for how to get started with Netflix OSS on your cloud today.
