Engineering Leader, Netflix
Netflix streaming service serves over 100m customers around the world. The demand for streaming is not constant, rising and falling throughout the day. Rather than maintain constant capacity for peak demand we deploy and retire enough virtual machines to build a small data center every 24-48 hours. This talk will reveal some of the logistics around managing large capacity in a dynamically changing environment including some of the tools we use for deployment, monitoring and performance tuning of our service. Ed Hunter is the manager of the Performance and Operating Systems group for the streaming service at Netflix. His team helps the owners of the applications which comprise Netflix tune and configure their service for maximum efficiency at reasonable cost. Prior to Netflix he spent time as a director of software at Juniper Networks and Sun Microsystems.

A system composed of n heterogenous servers receives jobs to be processed. A front-end dispatcher submits d (d < n) copies of each job to the queue of each of the d chosen servers. The copy that completes first causes the cancellation of each of the other d-1 copies, which can be executing or in the queue for a server. Jobs are considered to belong to different classes. This paper evaluates job execution time statistics as a function of (1) the average job arrival rate from a Poisson process, (2) the distribution of job service times for each class, (3) the processing capacity of each server, (4) the job replication policy.
