Encore Presentation: Building and Rebuilding the Data Center Every Day
August 22 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm EDT
Join us for an encore of our IMPACT 2017 keynote presentation.
Netflix streaming service serves over 100m customers around the world. The demand for streaming is not constant, rising and falling throughout the day. Rather than maintain constant capacity for peak demand we deploy and retire enough virtual machines to build a small data center every 24-48 hours. This talk will reveal some of the logistics around managing large capacity in a dynamically changing environment including some of the tools we use for deployment, monitoring and performance tuning of our service.
Presenter bio: Ed Hunter is the manager of the Performance and Operating Systems group for the streaming service at Netflix. His team helps the owners of the applications which comprise Netflix tune and configure their service for maximum efficiency at reasonable cost. Prior to Netflix he spent time as a director of software at Juniper Networks and Sun Microsystems.
