The Netflix Open Connect Content Delivery Network is our in-house custom network and server infrastructure responsible for streaming all video, images and related assets (css, javascript bundles, etc.) for Netflix clients around the world. In this talk, we dive deep into the details of what resiliency means in managing a Global CDN. We will also explore distinct failure domains and get into the details of some of the failure exercises that our team conducts and important metrics we measure.
