Netflix is the world's leading internet streaming service with over 100 million members in 190 countries. Our members enjoy more than 125 million hours of streamed video per day, on over 1000 different types of devices. The product experience is delivered by calling into a complex distributed system of services running in the cloud. With all the usage, our telemetry data volumes continue to rise. Operating at this scale requires extremely high levels of observability and automation. The Edge Insights team develops and operates the infrastructure that processes this data in realtime and provides insights that engineers depend on to measure, visualize, investigate, and optimize how customers experience their services.
