Spotify’s infrastructure is undergoing a drastic transformation from data centers running a large amount of proprietary services to public cloud hosted, cloud native services. Two years ago, all of Spotify’s services ran on on our own hardware. Today, they are running in Google Cloud Platform, and Spotify is in the process of replacing many of the proprietary systems with cloud native solutions like kubernetes, gRPC, and istio.

James and Dave will talk about the work that went into moving services into GCP and how Spotify got to where it is today. They will then cover ongoing work and plans to modernize the service infrastructure and migrate to cloud native services. This includes running service in kubernetes on GKE, migrating from a proprietary messaging stack to gRPC, as well as integrating the new infrastructure with existing service discovery and monitoring systems.
