Re: Was Netflix a unicorn?
A key point to keep in mind is that we are also looking at the current state of affairs. Years ago, Netflix suffered a large outage around Christmas that might have been reduced had they used a hybrid cloud approach.  Ofcourse, hindsight is 20/20 and there were many factors that we could argue either way, but the key point is that you still are at the mercy of the cloud provider if you are using a single-provider versus a hybrid approach.  Both have pros and cons, it really depends on risk tolerance, in-house skillsets, and the type of relationship you have with your provider.  If you are a key customer, there's a good chance that you will probably have reduced risk than other smaller customers might face due to the way these services are set up to support large vs smaller customers.

Was Netflix a unicorn?
Many people have suggested to Adrian Cockcroft that Netflix was a special case and all-cloud is not suitable for enterprises except for the Netflixes of the world. But he rejected that notion. Netflix is not a unicorn, he says. Any company can benefit from increased agililty and speed to market when it moves the bulk of its computing into the cloud.

Re: All Cloud
Agreed, Chris. One thing that struck me is that Cockcroft generated an amazing amount of trust with everyone around him -- or else none of the process redesign would have worked. Some people who work in organizations without a significant level of trust may have difficulty relating to his situation.

All Cloud
Adrian Cockcroft's perspective had a lot of people at the IW Conference talking and debating after his session. People tended to be directionally in agreement -- more cloud, the need to move faster -- but not ready to embrace his all cloud sentiment. Cockcroft challenged the audience to not do "undifferentiated heavy lifting."
