In a VentureBeat article the author describes ‘the future of enterprise tech‘, describing how pioneering organizations like Netflix are entirely embracing a Cloud paradigm for their business, moving away from the traditional approach of owning and operating your own data centre populated by EMC, Oracle and VMware.
Instead they are moving to ‘web scale IT’ via on demand rental of containers, commodity hardware and NoSQL databases, but critically it’s not just about swapping out the infrastructure components.
The Cloud Native Enterprise
Netflix is exactly the type of business venture you would think of when considering the benefits of Cloud computing.
They are challenged not only to distribute a massive volume of media across the global Internet to millions of customers, each generating a fluctuating demand for streaming resources, they are also required to innovate at high speed too, improving and adapting their service and business model in response to equally effective competitors.
Therefore what is interesting about their case study is how their technology strategy enables both. Through their pioneering of best practices like ‘Microservices’ and ‘Continuous Deployment’ they are able to both service this gigantic volume of media distribution, and also frequently update the business platform that performs this function, improving the user experience, optimizing performance and so on.
