Customer migration stories
Learn how Pokémon Company International decided to make changes to the infrastructure of their Pokémon Trainer Club, supported by a third-party NoSQL document database for more than 300 million Pokémon GO users.
As part of those changes, Pokémon moved user caching to Amazon ElastiCache, taking advantage of both Redis and Memcached. Redis queues tasks for new users, so they can be prompted to complete post-authentication tasks such as accepting terms and conditions. Memcached helps keep tickets live so that existing users’ sessions are not interrupted when new users join.
