Title: Uptime matters: A story of becoming multicloud while no one notices

Abstract: Netlify’s CDN runs on six different cloud providers, but up until recently, our origin servers relied on only one. That meant our origin servers were subject to the performance and uptime characteristics of a single provider. We needed make sure that in the face of a major outage from an underlying provider, anywhere in our network, Netlify’s service would continue with minimal interruption.

We undertook a migration project with the goal of building a multi-cloud production system that could direct traffic to Google Cloud (GCP), AWS, and Rackspace Cloud on demand, without any service interruptions.
This talk will cover how we planned, tested, and executed our first multi-cloud migration along with lessons learned and key takeaways you can apply to your own infrastructure decisions.
