Netflix is often held up as the poster child of cloud adoption and specifically the adoption of Amazon Web Services. While the technical discussion about what Netflix has done and currently does has been the subject of many presentations, less well known are the business drivers for the move to the cloud. Adrian Cockcroft from Netflix will discuss such issues as the trade-off between cost and agility and the business risk profile that Netflix sees comparing on-premise with cloud. Adrian also will pull back the curtain to give an inside perspective on international expansion, OpenStack, and whether or not anyone can catch AWS.
