Love it or hate it, Netflix is now the largest DVD rental services in the world. Netflix uses 37 distribution hubs to supply over 4 million subscribers with their choice of videos.

I have to admit, I was surprised to see how much of the processing is not automated. Netflix obviously requires a large staff to process its DVDs. The story also makes note of large portions of the Netflix office that are off limits. Odds are those areas are much more automated and more efficient.
