Halloween editions of DevOps Exchange is brought to you by LinuxRecruit x Deliveroo and features Horror Stories from Netflix & Ziglu.
This month, DOX is bringing you some of the scariest stories around from two incredible technology companies in an evening we have dubbed: DevOps Nightmares!
And what would be your worst nightmare during a global pandemic, yes Netflix is down! We have special insight into how Netflix ensures it stays up and running for the millions of users that rely on it.
We'll also have a spooky tale from Crypt...o start up Ziglu, all about deleting the file systems used to house the binaries for BACS, having 8 hours to restore these systems, restart everything without getting caught and ensuring almost everyone in the UK got paid the next day... Oh and they'll name names...
Your worst nightmare: Netflix is down!!
David Gildeh, Telemetry Insight Leader @ Netflix
We all know Netflix has become an essential service during the pandemic, but how does Netflix ensure that it all stays up and running for the millions of users that rely on it? David Gildeh will talk about the observability tools Netflix has developed internally to help its Engineers troubleshoot issues and continue serving its users reliably.
David Gildeh was the Founder of Outlyer, a cloud monitoring company, during which he helped start Doxlon the meet-up you’ve come to love for DevOps! Since the company was sold last year, he now resides in Silicon Valley and heads up the Telemetry platform team at Netflix.
