Asgard: Using Grails to Deploy Netflix to AWS

Netflix, Inc.

With more than 30 million streaming members, Netflix, Inc. (NASDAQ: NFLX) is the world's leading internet subscription service for enjoying movies and TV programs.

Netflix uses Grails for many internal web applications used by employees and partners. Engineers appreciate the combination of high development velocity, ability to use Java libraries, and minimalism of boilerplate code.

Grails is the basis for Asgard, the Netflix open source web interface for application deployments and cloud management in Amazon Web Services (AWS). Asgard was created by a handful of developers and is now in use in other companies including Obama for America.
