Let's take a closer look at how to design and deploy a large, globally distributed modern software stack. A stack that enables APIs, products and experience solutions across public clouds, private data centers and on people's own devices. Utilizing modern development practices, cloud native solutions and DevOps patterns, teams can deploy solutions that are used by millions of developers, thousands of users and hundreds of enterprises.

We deploy to over 20 locations globally, manage over 3000 repositories for code written in a dozen languages and implement this on top of a solid foundation of GitSecOps and Cloud Native Buildpacks invoked via Github Actions as the basis of our CI pipelines and the entire landscape is visualized and managed via an extended Spotify Backstage portal that can manage and deploy infrastructure and code to any number of self-service kubernetes clusters, spinning them up or down in multiple cloud environments with identical state and consistent monitoring.
