Maintaining a resilient front door at massive scale, from Netflix

Maintaining a resilient front door at massive scale, from Netflix

  • Netflix is responsible for about 1/3 of downstream traffic in NA

  • Responsible team in the company is called "edge engineering"

    • Apart from resiliency/scaling, also cares about high velocity product innovation and real time health insights
  • Basic architecture:

    • end-user devices make requests to ELBs, which delegates to zuul, which routes to origin servers serving APIs
You can’t perform that action at this time.
