TheFork on AWS

One of the leading online table booking services in Europe and Australia, TheFork connects diners with their restaurant of choice through its website and mobile app. The Tripadvisor company migrated to Amazon Web Services (AWS) in 2020 to improve the quality of its online services and more effectively support its 60,000 partner restaurants. Moving to the AWS Cloud gave it the ability to double capacity every minute to handle increased traffic volumes during peak booking times. And, with AWS Managed Services, the team at TheFork can focus on innovation and value, developing services like its contactless payment solution TheFork PAY.

TheFork’s restaurant booking services stay cutting edge using Amazon Web Services (AWS). The company migrated to the cloud to modernize its infrastructure—boosting the performance of its website and mobile app, delivering a better user experience, and optimizing bookings for its restaurant partners.
