Building for the Cloud
Netflix has moved its production services from being completely datacenter-based, to being primarily cloud-based in a little over a year. This video briefly explains why they did it and why they chose Amazon’s AWS.
The talk will then delves the evolution of our build and deployment architecture, starting with how our orignal monolithic DC-based SQL-tied webapp was built and deployed, and then detailing the evolution of the continuous integration systems which helped prepare us for the cloud move. And finally, it covers the current full build pipeline and deployment system which keeps them agile in the cloud now by providing quick turnaround, and rapid roll-out and recovery.
