Netflix continues to evolve our appliance hardware capabilities to help ISPs most efficiently deliver high-quality Netflix traffic with a focus on localization. We tailor deployment and hardware architectures for each ISP that we work with. Our Open Connect Appliances are based on commodity PC components, assembled in custom cases by our suppliers.
We have two main types of storage appliances, a 1U version and a 2U version. For larger deployments, we might also include offload appliances.
High level storage appliance specifications are available here. If you need detailed specifications for a particular Open Connect Appliance, contact your Partner Engagement Manager.
