Principal Software Developer Manager | Hulu
To serve over 28 million subscribers, Hulu operates thousands of microservices. All of those microservices are backed by Donki—a heroku-style, docker-native platform that has grown from handling hundreds of requests per second to hundreds of billions per day.
In this presentation I’ll talk about how we built Donki and the challenges we met along the way. I’ll also share how the platform evolved from datacenter-based server deployments into an effective, cloud-based container orchestration tool without impacting the technology decisions or workflow of application development teams.
