At the CloudBeat conference today, we got to talk to Netflix’s cloud architecture guru, Adrian Cockcroft.

Cockcroft took a moment to explain the massive changes Netflix had to go through to transition from a physical DVD rental company to a worldwide streaming video service. Of course, Netflix didn’t simply need the huge amount of bandwidth required for streaming video; it also needed to roll it out at human scale, and fast.

It was a tall order, and the company chose to work with Amazon Web Services to fulfill it.

Cockcroft also tells us a bit about how Netflix will continue to scale as its streaming media services branch out across new regions around the globe.

Stay tuned for more from CloudBeat today and tomorrow.
