Download the Essential Cloud Buyer’s Guide to learn important factors to consider before selecting a provider as well as buying criteria to help you make the best decision for your infrastructure needs, brought to you in partnership with Internap.

In moving its streaming product to the cloud, Netflix has been able to realize tremendous benefits in scalability, performance, and availability. The biggest benefit came from moving to a service-based architecture, which allowed engineering teams to accelerate their development cycle and innovate more quickly. However, cloud migration was a substantial effort. We mobilized resources across the company over several years, reorganized our engineering and operations teams, developed new security policies, migrated to the DevOps operations model, and even embraced a new product architecture. In this talk, we trace the evolution of the Netflix cloud model, both the successes and the challenges, and present them in a way that's maximally useful to enterprises considering making the move to the cloud.
