Platform Architecture in Computer Science: Case Study on Various Platforms

Before reading this article, I strongly recommend reading my previous two articles.

Platform Architecture with Multiple Apps Approach

Platform Architecture with Micro-Service Approach

Despite all of these inputs, I am still saying platform architecture depends upon various needs of the platform, hence there is nothing like one standard way, it will be always evolving. Hence let us look into some of the references for Highly Scalable Platform Architectures to understand even better

Uber has a micro-service architecture.

  1. Netflix Architecture – Reference Click Here

Netflix architecture looks very complex and it is micro-service architecture

Some highlights of Netflix Architecture, Hundred’s of microservices and one giant service. thousand’s of servers spread across the world, thousand’s of Content Delivery Networks, Netflix uses their own CDN called Open Connect

  1. 100s of microservices
  2. 1000s of daily production changes
  3. 10,000s of instances running in AWS cloud
  4. 10, 000, 000, 000 hours of streamed

This is how it looks 🙂
