Adobe's journey into building an Internal Developer Platform

In this session, we will share our journey towards building an Adobe IDP for over 5000 developers, current challenges, insights on how we measure productivity, and learnings from one of our recently launched CI/CD products which is an integral part of the IDP.

Adobe began its Cloud-Native journey back in 2015 and has since then expanded to over 200 multi-tenant clusters deployed across multiple regions and geos. We have an average of >3 million containers with over 200 production deployments each day. All this has been made possible with Adobe's Cloud Platform called Ethos which provides high resiliency, reliability, and robust CI/CD capabilities to Adobe product teams. We are now expanding this platform into an Adobe-wide Internal Developer Platform (IDP) that aims to provide a seamless experience incorporating service creation, deployment, and management to over 5000 developers. The IDP will integrate and provide key capabilities across security, infrastructure provisioning, monitoring, diagnostics and GitOps-based CI/CD tooling using Argo. Adobe is also going through a massive project of modernizing its K8s cluster fleet which will lead to greater resiliency and considerable cost savings each year.
