Abstract

Disenchantment is a Netflix show following the medieval misadventures of a hard-drinking princess, her feisty elf, and her personal demon. In this talk, we will follow the story of Netflix’s container management platform, Titus, which powers critical aspects of the Netflix business (video encoding & streaming, big data, recommendations & machine learning, and other workloads). We’ll cover the challenges growing Titus from 10’s to 1000’s of workloads. We’ll talk about our feisty team’s work across container runtimes, scheduling & control plane, and cloud infrastructure integration. We’ll talk about the demons we’ve found on this journey covering operability, security, reliability and performance.

Speaker: Andrew Spyker

Manager, Netflix Container Cloud @Netflix

Previously worked to mature the technology base of our container cloud (Project Titus) within the development team including advanced scheduling and resource management, Docker container execution, and AWS & Netflix infrastructure integration. Recently, moved into a product management role collaborating with supporting Netflix infrastructure dependencies as well as supporting new container cloud usage scenarios including user on-boarding, feature prioritization/delivery and relationship management. Now, managing the extended development team that will enable our container cloud to be a key aspect of Netflix's infrastructure. Still on-call, but now loving building the team as much as building the product.
