FanFight Enhances Game Platform Stability with AWS Enterprise Support
FanFight is one of India's finest fantasy sports portals. Founded in 2017, it has grown rapidly and amassed over 8+ million fantasy users. Users choose a sport (cricket, football, or kabaddi), pick a fixture, create personalised fantasy teams to compete against the most avid fantasy players & win cash. Points are won based on their real-time performances of the players chosen by the user.
FanFight have been building its critical workloads on Amazon Web Services (AWS) to seamlessly manage the rising traffic on its platform during India's popular cricketing events. FanFight needed a collaborative partnership to support sudden traffic surges, cost governance, improve operations practices to operate well on AWS, and enhance security posture. Fanfight partnered with AWS Enterprise Support (ES) to bring in the product's stability and functioning.
"With ES, we have access to an AWS Technical Account Manager (TAM), who provides proactive advocacy and guidance to better plan and build effective solutions by following AWS best practices,” said Mukul Anand, Head, Product, FanFight.
“We scaled efficiently during our peak events with structured planning through Infrastructure Event Management conducted by a TAM, even as we grew user acquisition. Further, we get access to 24x7 Cloud Support Engineers, and the TAM is one phone call away to support us in business-critical situations. Enterprise Support acts as an insurance policy for us. The TAM proactively does cost optimization by bringing cost governance and conduct operations reviews to improve our operational efficiency. I would strongly recommend my acquaintances and peers for ES. ES played a pivotal role in helping us successfully migrate from from MongoDB to DynamoDB with a planned IEM, which resulted in cost savings of $1M annual recurring revenue (ARR).”
