Netty at Apple Inc.

I was pleasantly surprised to learn that most of Apple's cloud services run on Netty.

Norman Maurer had posted an excellent presentation on how Netty is being used at Apple and how many of the extreme performance requirements were met.

There are more than 400 thousand instances of Netty at Apple; handling millions of requests/sec. Netty powers all popular cloud services such as iCloud, iTunes, Siri, Apple Maps, etc.
