Netflix is a media streaming company and a movie studio with data at exabyte scale. Most of the data generated, transferred and stored at Netflix is very media specific, for example, raw camera footage, or data generated as a result of encoding and rendering for different screen types.
In this session, I will throw light on how we design a media aware and optimized transfer, storage and presentation layer for data.
By leveraging this architecture at Netflix scale, we provide a scalable, reliable, and optimized backend layer for media data.
Major takeaways from this session
- Learn about the challenges of designing a scalable object storage layer for data while adhering to the file system POSIX semantics of media applications
- Learn about the optimizations applied to reduce cloud storage footprint, such as chunking, deduplication
- Learn about how different applications expect data to be presented at different locations and in different formats.
