Electronic Arts (EA) is a global leader in digital interactive entertainment, best known for video games like FIFA, Madden, and Battlefield. The increasing scale and complexity of telemetry data over the years, along with data archiving and long-term backup needs, left them with an immense storage challenge.

The company used AWS to solve their large data storage needs using S3 Glacier Deep Archive and S3 Intelligent-Tiering. With minimal to no changes to existing tools, EA was able to reduce archive costs by 75% and access cost by 30%.
