Netflix has revolutionized the global entertainment industry, and continues to change the way people watch their favorite shows and movies. We serve billions of viewing hours every month to more than 250 million member households globally, across thousands of different devices.
At the heart of Netflix technology is the Platform, which serves as the foundation for Netflix application development, and powers the viewing experience of millions of customers every day. This Platform needs to be highly available at scale, robust, resilient and ergonomic.
The Dynamic Configuration Management team owns our Fast Properties service, which is a mission critical piece of the Netflix service architecture foundation and underpins many of our configuration needs. All our services rely on these configurations for many aspects of service management, including traffic management, application configuration, feature flagging, and much more.
