NetflixOSS Acme Air Sample and Benchmark

This application shows an implementation of a fictitious airline called "Acme Air". The application was built with the some key business requirements: the ability to scale to billions of web API calls per day, the need to develop and deploy the application in public clouds (as opposed to dedicated pre-allocated infrastructure), and the need to support multiple channels for user interaction (with mobile enablement first and browser/Web 2.0 second). In addition to the original Acme Air application, the application has been changed to leverage the Netflix OSS cloud platform.

What has been changed in this application for Netflix OSS

This application is based upon the original Acme Air Sample and Benchmark, but has been changed in the following ways to demostrate the Netflix OSS cloud platform:

  • Split monolythic implementation into micro-services based architecture (added authentication micro service)
  • Added Karyon based bootstrapping in order to expose the management console and automatic registration into Eureka
  • Implemented Archaius property based configuration for key dependencies and service registration
  • Reimplemented REST calls to use Ribbon (with Eureka Client) for automatic service invocation load balancing
  • Wrapped REST calls with Hystrix to provide for fast failure and tolerance of failure in back end services
  • (Coming soon) Implemented Cassandra based data service implementation and accessed via Asytanax
  • Created AMI's for easy deployment
