Changing the tires of a moving car - Moving Spotify's Data Infrastructure from on-premise to Google Cloud Platform

A session at Crunch Conference 2016

During the presentation we will have a look at Spotify's move of 12.000+ servers from 4 data centers to Google's Cloud Platform. Even though Spotify is still in the midsts of the migration, we already have a ton of learnings that we can share. Obviously we will look at the "why", "what" and "how" of this enormous migration.
