  • NoSQL@Netflix

    by Sid Anand

    Over the past 2 years, Netflix has moved the vast majority of its infrastructure, applications, and data to Amazon's Web Services. At the end of 2010, we were serving 90% of our site and streaming traffic out of the cloud. This talk details Netflix's transition away from relational databases and towards high-availability (NoSQL) storage systems. In our first phase, we moved from Oracle to SimpleDB (and S3). However, based on a reassessment of our needs, we have started investing in Cassandra. This talk will details the reasons for our transitions and the strengths/weaknesses of the different technologies.
