Too Long; Didn't Read

Netflix is a service that streams around 250 million hours of video per day to around 98 million paying subscribers in 190 countries. It uses around 700 microservices to control each of the many parts of what makes up the entire Netflix service. Each application, or microservice’s code and resources, are its very own. It will not share any of it with any other app by nature. Developers can now make many changes to each application as long as they ensure that it plays well with the API.
