In this interview we talk with Adrian Cockcroft, the architect for Netflix’s cloud systems team. We discuss how Netflix combines 300 loosely coupled services across 10,000 machines. An interesting revelation is that they fully embrace continuous delivery and each team is allowed to deploy new versions of their service whenever they want.
In this interview Jez Humble discusses the concept of continuous delivery, which implies that software should always be production ready throughout its lifecycle. That means that every build could be released into production and run effectively. Continuous delivery involves build and deployment automation, continuous integration, test automation, managing infrastructure and environments and more.
