10 Why?  Differences in technology?  Differences in geography?  Differences in configuration?  Differences in traffic management policies? 10

11 Netflix Traffic Delivery  Some delivered from AS2906  Not dependent on DNS  Otherwise  Akamai  Level3  Limelight Traffic share directed by client-measured network performance and commercial considerations 11

12 Netflix-Developed Adaptive Client  All content delivered via HTTP  Clients actively measure network performance to select bitrate and CDN  Stream start  During playback  Very large library of catalog titles  Wide distribution of viewing across the entire library driven by highly personalized recommendation engine 12

13 Helping Service Providers Scale Netflix Delivery  Performance statistics  Traffic forecast under mutual NDA  Embedded caching with larger providers (>5 Gbps)  Peering for smaller providers (<5 Gbps)  Caching and peering uses BGP to associate client networks to caches  No DNS magic needed  BGP MEDs are used to create hierarchy giving service providers control over traffic 13

14 Directing Clients to Caches Netflix Control Servers Broadband ISP 1. Client contacts Netflix control servers 2. Netflix control servers respond with address of local Netflix Cache 3. Client connects to local cache 4. Local cache delivers video stream User routing is done by Netflix control servers, not dependent on client DNS configuration Request is routed to the nearest available cache Working sets of popular content deliver up to >80% network offload Netflix Cache

15 The Netflix Cache  Serve >80% of Netflix traffic from the local ISP datacenter  Saves on transit, transport and other upstream scaling costs  Used exclusively for Netflix content  Completely integrated with the Netflix content delivery system  Fill content outside peak times

16 Cache Hardware Space optimized: 4U high-density storage Power optimized for low power/cooling requirements ( ≅ 500W) 10GE optical interfaces Redundant power supplies 16

17 Upstream Network Offload 94% average across a 24 hour period

18 Space optimized: 4U high-density storage Power optimized for low power/cooling requirements ( ≅ 500W) 10GE optical network interfaces FreeBSD nginx high-performance web server 18 Cache Hardware & Software
