Netflix Continues Experiencing Great Performance In Using FreeBSD For Their CDN
It's been a love affair going on for years, but should you not already know, Netflix has long been leveraging FreeBSD as part of its in-house content delivery network (CDN) for serving its millions of users with on-demand video. This weekend at FOSDEM, Jonathan Looney of the company talked about their usage of FreeBSD.
With FreeBSD on commodity server hardware they are able to achieve 90 Gb/s serving on TLS-encrypted connections with not even full CPU utilization. They rely upon the very latest FreeBSD code in order to stay up-to-date with bleeding-edge features and capabilities. Netflix also tries to upstream their FreeBSD changes where deemed suitable.
