Amazon DynamoDB Accelerator Customers


10 billion matches later, Tinder has changed the way people meet around the world.

“For Tinder, performance is absolutely key. We are major users of DynamoDB. We love its simplicity and ability to scale with consistent performance. With DAX, AWS has taken performance to a new level, with response times in microseconds. We really like how DAX integrates seamlessly with DynamoDB, is API-compatible, and doesn’t require us to write any new code.” — Maria Zhang, VP of Engineering, Tinder

Canon Inc.

Canon Inc. Office Imaging Products Development Planning & Management Center provides mission-critical cloud services connecting to business machines for worldwide customers across four continents.

“Amazon DynamoDB Accelerator (DAX) is a very wonderful service to improve the user experience of Amazon DynamoDB. Our developers like the excellent design concept of the DAX SDK, which enables us to switch from DynamoDB and start using DAX seamlessly. Our team has succeeded in keeping the DynamoDB capacity units far lower while improving the data access speed by DAX.” — Takashi Yagita, Principal Engineer, Office Imaging Products Development Planning & Management Center, Canon Inc.


Careem is a car-booking service and app that serves more than 40 cities and 11 countries in the broader Middle East. The company uses a number of AWS services, including DynamoDB, to store locations of its captains, promotions, and configurations.

“We have been involved early on during the DAX public preview, and have been running our production workload on DAX with no issues. We are using DAX to scale our reads across our network of services. As a write-through cache, DAX has simplified our application stack and has removed the need for building a central service for our caching needs. A key feature that motivated our adoption of DAX was that it is API-compatible with DynamoDB and thus required minimal changes to use with our existing app—you only need to change the DynamoDB client to the DAX client. Our team was really impressed with the built-in failover and replication support.” — Tafseer-ul-Islam Siddiqui, Software Architect, Careem

Expedia Inc.

Expedia Inc. is a leading online travel company, providing leisure and business travel to customers worldwide.

“At Expedia, we are longtime customers of AWS, and use DynamoDB across the company to power many of our applications. We received early access to DAX, and it has proven to be fast and easy to use. DAX represents a big opportunity for us to find the optimal balance between infrastructure cost and system performance.” — Brandon O’Brien, Principal Software Engineer, Expedia Inc.


Twilio helps businesses make communications relevant and contextual by making it possible to easily embed real-time communication and authentication capabilities directly into software applications.

“We depend on DynamoDB’s consistent performance and scalability and trust it to power our Programmable Chat offering. The ability to supercharge DynamoDB with DAX is something we're looking forward to.” — Pat Malatack, General Manager, Twilio Messaging


Genesys is the global leader in omnichannel customer experience and contact center solutions.

“The AWS team has taken a best-practice architectural pattern and turned it into something repeatable and valuable for its customers. I expect DAX to become the de facto replacement for our distributed cache plus Amazon DynamoDB storage tier across our collections of microservices in PureCloud. The combination of sub-millisecond latency and simple transitions from the existing DynamoDB client means we'll be able to rapidly adopt this service as it becomes available across the globe, significantly improving our performance and cost profile for read-intensive workloads.” — Glenn Nethercutt, Chief Architect of PureCloud, Genesys
