SuperAwesome wants to make the Internet safer for kids. They built a technology platform that helps all players in the digital ecosystem create kid-safe digital engagement, including apps and sites, as well as additional functionality like video, safe ad monetization, authentication and community functionality.
“Over four years, SuperAwesome changed significantly. We went from running a handful of EC2 Instances in one region to hundreds in different regions and AWS accounts – from a few hundred of HTTP requests per minute to tens of thousands per second, from a few million analytics events per day to more than a billion, and from two Kubernetes clusters to more than twenty. Growth brought complexity. To keep things simple and manageable, we switched to Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (Amazon EKS). This allowed us to keep benefits from all the features of Kubernetes without the hassle of managing the clusters ourselves.”

At FollowAnalytics, they help companies to understand how their users behave in their mobile and web apps, and to retain them through highly-targeted marketing campaigns, using push and in-app notifications.
“We handled billions of requests, helping our clients to perform better Analytics on the data generated by their clients when they interact with the mobile app. According to several pieces of research, analytics is a source of competitive advantage, and our clients know that. The smartest decision was to move to EKS. The main advantage of migrating the cluster was not having to take care of the Kubernetes control plane anymore and not to think about the scalability and reliability of these components, since now that responsibility is delegated to AWS. We’re able to handle much more traffic and perform analytics as never before”
