About the talk:

Netflix grew rapidly and moved its streaming video service to the AWS cloud between 2009 and 2010. In 2011 the architecture was extended to use Apache Cassandra as a backend, and the service was internationalized to support Latin America. In 2012 Netflix launched in the UK, Ireland and the Nordics, using the the combination of AWS capacity in Ireland and Apache Cassandra to create a truly global backend service. The code that manages and operates the global Netflix platform is being released as a series of open source projects at (Asgard, Priam etc.). The platform is structured as a large scale PaaS, strongly leveraging advanced features of AWS to deploy many thousands of instances. This talk will discuss how to architecture a high availability site on AWS.
