Presentation: Breaking Bad at Netflix: Building Failure as a Service


Day of week:

1:40pm - 2:30pm

Netflix’s 57M members watch over 2 billion hours of content per month and their streaming accounts for 1/3rd of Internet traffic in some parts of the world. The Edge platform, which 1000’s of devices rely on to access the streaming experience, guards the front door to Netflix where any major issue results in a twitter storm.

In order to harden our systems, we designed “Failure as a Service” to allow anyone to test and validate how our systems handle failure. Purposefully injecting failure in production can be a scary prospect (for all involved!). Learn how we helped engineers have the confidence to run large scale failure tests, and how we automated these tests to combat the drift into failure.
