Zoom Video Communications, Inc.
"When the COVID-19 pandemic began, there was an enormous demand for our voice and video services. In early 2020, we saw unprecedented usage grow from 10M to 300M Daily Meeting Participants from new and existing customers that needed to connect virtually. On the backend, we were able to manage this surge with Amazon DynamoDB for Zoom Meetings. Using DynamoDB global tables in conjunction with on-demand mode enabled us to scale nearly infinitely with no performance issues, even with our sudden spike in usage."
