It’s hard to have a conversation or hear a presentation these days about DevOps without hearing Netflix’s name being uttered: they’re a poster-child not only for employing DevOps principles and techniques, but for successfully moving their entire application to Amazon’s Web Services public cloud. But how did they achieve this? And what cultural and technological struggles did they have while reshaping themselves from a company that mails out DVDs to a company that slings bits and produces Emmy-award winning content.
