"Why Netflix, why cloud, why AWS?"  Netflix has over 26 million users and represents over 30% of all internet traffic at some times of the day.  Using Amazon Web Services as a command and control layer for hundreds of different device types and millions of devices, learn how Netflix takes advantage of the EC2 ecosystem to provide what amounts to a Java (and soon Python) PaaS.  We'll walk through how Netflix stores its data in Cassandra and how it was moved from Oracle; Big Data at Netflix; how we use auto-scaling and multi-AZ/multi-region deployments to maintain reliability; and how we use the "monkeys" to maintain reliability and keep costs down.  Lastly, you'll learn how a public cloud architecture differs from a datacenter architecture and what advantages and disadvantages that provides.

Presentation: "From Private to Public Clouds - Ins and Outs, Dos and Don'ts, and Gotchas"
