I’m very honoured to have been asked to speak as Keynote speaker at Streaming Media magazine European conference in London on the 27th February. Where I will be talking about “Streaming in the land of containers”. The conference programme is available here.
What does it really mean to operate an OTT live streaming platform at scale for millions of customers every day? As one of Europe’s leading Pay TV operators, Sky customers know that when it has the Sky name on it, they can expect to receive a premium streaming experience with the best sports, entertainment and movies content. In this talk, you will learn why Sky is moving towards a containerised microservices architecture for its live streaming platform, the benefits this brings, and the challenges it presents, including;
- Infrastructure agnostic and scalable architecture
- Self-healing capability
- End-to-end automation
- Software based single channel fault domain
