Flitsmeister is a mobile app that gives continuously updated traffic information to more than 700,000 drivers in the Netherlands. The company faced performance challenges with a server infrastructure that was not refreshing traffic information quickly enough during peak usage periods. The company turned to AWS and is using Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3), Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2), Auto Scaling, and Elastic Load Balancing to handle usage spikes. With AWS, the app now refreshes data twice as fast as it did on the previous platform.
