McDonald's Case Study
Using AWS, McDonald’s Corporation transformed into a digital technology company, beat performance targets by up to 66 percent, and completes 8,600 transactions per second via its point-of-sale (POS) system. McDonald’s Corporation is an American hamburger and fast food restaurant chain that serves 69 million customers each day. McDonald’s uses a number of AWS services including Amazon EC2, Elastic Load Balancing, Amazon EBS, and Amazon ElastiCache to support its global POS system, including 200,000 registers and 300,000 POS devices.
