Introducing Keynote Speaker Monal Daxini

We proudly present our second keynote speaker for Flink Forward San Francisco: Monal Daxini, Engineering Leader at Netflix.

Monal Daxini is a seasoned engineering leader; currently responsible for managing Stream Processing cloud infrastructure for business insights at Netflix. He has worked on Netflix’s Cassandra & Dynamite infrastructure, and was instrumental in developing the first cloud compute infrastructure for encoding Netflix content.

He has over 15 years of experience building distributed systems at organizations like Netflix,, and Cisco. He holds a Masters in Computer Science, and a Bachelors in Electronics and Telecommunications engineering.

Monal will present the keynote “Stream Processing with Flink at Netflix”. The need for gleaning answers from unbounded data streams is moving from nicety to a necessity. Netflix is a data driven company, and has a need to process over 1 trillion events a day amounting to 3 PB of data to derive business insights.
To ease extracting insight, Netflix is building a self-serve, scalable, fault-tolerant, multi-tenant “Stream Processing as a Service” platform so the user can focus on data analysis. Monal shares their experience using Flink to help build the platform.
