Yet another great engineering read, doing things at scale, from the Netflix team, and sharing for the community of distributed systems engineers. I quite like the RENO acronym, wondering if we should use that here at Ably.com. We're an edge messaging platform with less concurrents (10s of millions daily typically) but much higher RPS rates (orders of magnitude higher at peaks), solving similar problems.

Ankush Gulati, David Gevorkyan, Michael Clark, Gokhan Ozer, I'd love to share war stories some day on our experience with globally distributed systems and I'll know it's a good one when we get onto thundering herds :)

Great article and work.
