Netflix Scheduling with Sharma Podila

At Netflix, developers write applications with a variety of requirements–from simple requests for a list of movies to more resource-intensive requests like a complex machine learning workflow. Netflix wants developers to be able to request the resources they need from a compute cluster and receive those resources on-demand, without thinking too much about the state of that pool of resources they are drawing from.

At the cluster level, this means scheduling the application requests intelligently. Sharma Podila, a distributed systems software architect at Netflix, explains how Netflix has built a cloud native scheduling system on top of Mesos.
