    Yeah it’s not like Prime day for us ;). The only time in the recent past we had a some hands on deck situation was for the movie launch during superbowl and that was mainly because we wanted it to be a surprise.

      Srsly though, auto scaling on AWS makes simple traffic fluctuations fairly painless. Pages for on-call are usually during the day when engineers are breaking stuff.

    On calls are sleeping. Alerts will be triggered automatically if something goes wrong.

    One show releasing ? Cmon. Netflix has tens of thousands of titles. A new season of a popular show might be a 5-10% spike over normal.

    Didn't stay up for it, but thanks for reminding me to check the stats this morning! It's kind of fun to see how much of a traffic spike we get from big launches.
