Cloud Architecture Tutorial - Why and What (1of 3)
Cloud Architecture Tutorial How Ne3lix Built a Scalable Java oriented PaaS running on AWS Part 1 of 3 Qcon London March 5th, 2012 Adrian Cockcro6 @adrianco #ne:lixcloud h>p://www.linkedin.com/in/adriancockcro6
Tutorial Abstract – Set Context • StarJng with the usual quesJons: “Why Ne:lix, why cloud, why AWS?” • This tutorial explains which business models and applicaJons beneﬁt most from cloud, what to look for in a cloud provider, and how the tradiJonal enterprise compuJng marketplace is being disrupted. • Moving on to the next quesJon: “What can run in the cloud?” a step by step approach to cloud migraJon is described, along with a varied set of use cases for both customer facing and internal web services, big data analyJcs and bulk computaJon. Cloud migraJon starts by moving developers to work on cloud using “boot camp” training sessions, then a6er building out the iniJal core pla:orm, the ﬁrst applicaJons are launched. • The real meat of the tutorial comes when we look at how to construct an applicaJon with a host of important properJes: elasJc, dynamic, scalable, agile, fast, cheap, robust, durable, observable, secure. Over the last three years Ne:lix has ﬁgured out cloud based soluJons with these properJes, deployed them globally at large scale and reﬁned them into a global Java oriented Pla:orm as a Service. The PaaS is based on low cost open source building blocks such as Apache Tomcat, Apache Cassandra, and Memcached. Components of this pla:orm are in the process of being open-‐sourced by Ne:lix, so that other companies can get a start on building their own customized PaaS that leverages advanced features of AWS and supports rapid agile development. • The architecture is described in terms of anJ-‐pa>erns -‐ things to avoid in the datacenter to cloud transiJon. A scalable global persistence Jer based on Cassandra provides a highly available and durable under-‐pinning. Lessons learned will cover soluJons to common problems, availability and robustness, observability. A>endees should leave the tutorial with a clear understanding of what is diﬀerent about cloud architectures, why, what and how to make the transiJon, and a set of ﬂexible and scalable open source building blocks that can be used to construct their own cloud pla:orm.
PresentaJon vs. Tutorial • PresentaJon – Short duraJon, focused subject – One presenter to many anonymous audience – A few quesJons at the end • Tutorial – Time to explore in and around the subject – Tutor gets to know the audience – Discussion, rat-‐holes, “bring out your dead”
Tutorial SecJons Intro: Who are you, what are your quesJons? Part 1 -‐ Why use cloud, what runs in the cloud Part 2 -‐ Pla:orm component architecture Part 3 -‐ Running in the cloud

A>endee IntroducJons • Who are you, where do you work • Why are you here today, what do you need • “Bring out your dead” – Do you have a speciﬁc problem or quesJon? – One sentence elevator pitch
Ne:lix Inc. With more than 23 million streaming members in the United States, Canada, LaBn America, the United Kingdom and Ireland, NeGlix, Inc. is the worlds leading internet subscripBon service for enjoying movies and TV series.. Source: h>p://ir.ne:lix.com
What kind of Cloud? • So6ware as a Service – SaaS – Replaces in house applicaJons – Targets end users • Pla:orm as a Service – PaaS – Replaces in house operaJons funcJons – Targets developers • Infrastructure as a Service – IaaS – Replaces in house datacenter capacity – Targets developers and ITops
What Ne:lix Did • Moved to SaaS – Corporate IT – Workday etc. – Tools – Pagerduty, AppDynamics, ElasJc MapReduce • Built our own PaaS <-‐ today’s focus – Customized to make our developers producJve – When we started, we had li>le choice • Moved incremental capacity to IaaS – No new datacenter space since 2008 as we grew – Moved our streaming apps to the cloud
Data Center Ne:lix could not build new datacenters fast enough Capacity growth is acceleraJng, unpredictable Product launch spikes -‐ iPhone, Wii, PS3, Xbox InternaJonal – Canada, LaJn America, UK/Ireland
Out-‐Growing Data Center h>p://techblog.ne:lix.com/2011/02/redesigning-‐ne:lix-‐api.html 37x Growth Jan 2010-‐Jan 2011 Datacenter Capacity
Ne:lix.com is now ~100% Cloud A few small back end data sources sJll in progress All internaJonal product is cloud based USA speciﬁc logisJcs remains in the Datacenter Working on SOX, PCI as scope starts to include AWS
Ne:lix Choice was AWS with our own pla:orm and tools Unique pla:orm requirements and extreme scale, agility and ﬂexibility
Leverage AWS Scale “the biggest public cloud” AWS investment in features and automaJon Use AWS zones and regions for high availability, scalability and global deployment
But isn’t Amazon a compeJtor? Many products that compete with Amazon run on AWS We are a “poster child” for the AWS Architecture Ne:lix is one of the biggest AWS customers Co-‐opeJJon -‐ compeJtors are also partners
Could Ne:lix use another cloud? Would be nice, we use three interchangeable CDN Vendors But no-‐one else has the scale and features of AWS You have to be this tall to ride this ride… Maybe in 2-‐3 years?
We want to use clouds, we don’t have Jme to build them Public cloud for agility and scale We use electricity too, but don’t want to build our own power staJon… AWS because they are big enough to allocate thousands of instances per hour when we need to
Amazon Cloud Terminology Reference See http://aws.amazon.com/ This is not a full list of Amazon Web Service features• AWS – Amazon Web Services (common name for Amazon cloud) • AMI – Amazon Machine Image (archived boot disk, Linux, Windows etc. plus applicaJon code) • EC2 – ElasJc Compute Cloud – Range of virtual machine types m1, m2, c1, cc, cg. Varying memory, CPU and disk conﬁguraJons. – Instance – a running computer system. Ephemeral, when it is de-‐allocated nothing is kept. – Reserved Instances – pre-‐paid to reduce cost for long term usage – Availability Zone – datacenter with own power and cooling hosJng cloud instances – Region – group of Avail Zones – US-‐East, US-‐West, EU-‐Eire, Asia-‐Singapore, Asia-‐Japan, SA-‐Brazil, US-‐Gov • ASG – Auto Scaling Group (instances booJng from the same AMI) • S3 – Simple Storage Service (h>p access) • EBS – ElasJc Block Storage (network disk ﬁlesystem can be mounted on an instance) • RDS – RelaJonal Database Service (managed MySQL master and slaves) • DynamoDB/SDB – Simple Data Base (hosted h>p based NoSQL datastore, DynamoDB replaces SDB) • SQS – Simple Queue Service (h>p based message queue) • SNS – Simple NoJﬁcaJon Service (h>p and email based topics and messages) • EMR – ElasJc Map Reduce (automaJcally managed Hadoop cluster) • ELB – ElasJc Load Balancer • EIP – ElasJc IP (stable IP address mapping assigned to instance or ELB) • VPC – Virtual Private Cloud (single tenant, more ﬂexible network and security constructs) • DirectConnect – secure pipe from AWS VPC to external datacenter • IAM – IdenJty and Access Management (ﬁne grain role based security keys)
AWS and the Seven Dwarfs • Public Cloud AlternaJves to AWS – Far fewer features, much smaller scale – Less mature APIs, many variants of APIs – Some have addiJonal features or performance • Private Cloud AlternaJves – O6en harder to build and run than you think – Without scale and mulJ-‐tenancy, much higher costs – O6en driven by ITops needs rather than developers
Some AlternaJve Public Clouds IaaS that you could build your own PaaS architecture on • OpenStack Based – Rackspace – HP Cloud – ATT Cloud • GoGrid • Joyent – Solaris in the cloud • Memset – UK based
What about other PaaS? • CloudFoundry – Open Source by VMWare – Developer-‐friendly, easy to get started – Missing scale and some enterprise features • Rightscale – Widely used to abstract away from AWS – Creates it’s own lock-‐in problem… • AWS is growing into this space – We didn’t want a vendor between us and AWS – We wanted to build a thin PaaS, that gets thinner
Enterprise Market DisrupJon • Enterprise CompuJng Vendors $$$$$$ – IBM, HP, Dell, Oracle, EMC, NetApp… – CIO/ITOps integrates and provisions – TradiJonal, and moving towards private clouds • IaaS Vendors Sell Directly to Developers $ – Bypassing ITOps with stealth cloud based projects – Bypassing enterprise vendor supply chain – Low margin, low fricJon, dollar at a Jme
