During COVID, Peloton experienced exponential growth. Countless customers flocked to the company’s at-home fitness experience, and membership grew from 1 million to more than 4 million people. To continue delivering an experience that positively impacted the physical, mental and emotional wellbeing of these new and existing Members, the Peloton team tapped into the CNCF community and cloud native technologies, helping them accommodate this exponential growth. During this time, Peloton moved 100% of its traffic to the Kubernetes orchestration to make hypergrowth easier and more efficient. It leveraged other cloud native projects such as ArgoCD, Fluentd and the OpenTelemetry observability framework to innovate faster across a wide range of engineering disciplines. 

In this keynote, Jim Haughwout, Peloton’s VP of Platform, will share how Peloton engineers leveraged cloud native technology to unlock transformational growth for the company, while growing the engineering team itself by 300% in the midst of the pandemic. Haughwout will also share how Peloton will harness cloud native technologies and the power of community to boost the experience of engineers across multiple domains, unlocking further growth with the rise of IoT, streaming, edge, mobile, cloud-native, AI, and ML.
