Netflix Going 100% Cloud

As the WSJ details, Netflix is moving to a 100% cloud-based server infrastructure:

“For our streaming business, we have been 100% cloud-based for customer facing systems for some time now, and are planning to completely retire our data centers later this summer,” the company said in an email to CIO Journal.

If a $152b market cap video and ecommerce company thinks this is the future, it’s probably worth taking note. (also makes going with that SAAS ecommerce platform something of a no brainer)
