About the Team

Media Infrastructure Platform - Storage team provides a content media storage infrastructure to enable Netflix to store and access media files at scale, reliably, and efficiently to meet the demands of a globally distributed studio. Our products are highly leveraged by Netflix Studio and Content Engineering, for example, for the encoding pipeline, post production pipeline, content asset management, marketing applications, etc. We are partnering closely with a variety of cross-functional teams including Netflix engineering platform, data science engineering, and content business engineering, as well as product managers. The team current owns a few key services:

++ An object storage built on top of S3 with a set of features like Netflix access control, security, chunking, client side encryption, full file checksum, etc.

++ A cloud-based file and folder solution with a set of features like files and folder change events/notifications, lifecycle management, media sequence detection, etc.

Besides the cloud services the team currently owns, the team is also looking to grow into a more diverse storage space to meet the needs of business growth.

The Media Infrastructure Platform - Storage team is part of a media-focused engineering group which provides highly available infrastructure for content production and processing, storage and access, across all Netflix productions and licensed content. Infrastructure pieces like massive scale media processing platforms (1 , 2) media storage, workflows (Conductor), media asset management, collaboration, reporting, data movement , and data processing are some of the key services we build. All of this is custom built on top of Amazon Web Services (AWS) infrastructure.
