Netflix and Cloud IT



I recently did some technical consulting for Netflix.

I can say that they are really, truly committed to cloud IT, per their public pronouncements. Most large companies are still just dipping a toe in the water, so it’s significant that Netflix took the plunge head-first.

They’re Java-centric and mainly use Open Source, with the notable exception of Perforce. 🙂
