Running Netflix in the Cloud with Cassandra
Netflix used to be a traditional Datacenter based architecture using a few large Oracle database backends. Now it is one of the largest cloud based architectures, with master copies of all data living in Cassandra.
This presentation discusses how Netflix made the transition, how they automated and open sourced Cassandra management for tens of clusters and hundreds of nodes using Priam and Astyanax, backups, archiving and performance and scalability benchmarks.
