Around the world, people are enjoying over a billion hours per month of streaming movies and TV shows from Netflix.

By combining ultra-dense storage capacity, high capacity network bandwidth, and the stability and performance of FreeBSD, it delivers a better experience to customers while easing the network transit cost burden on ISPs.
