LG Electronics, a global leader and technology innovator in consumer electronics, mobile communications, and home appliances, has selected AWS to run its mission-critical services for more than 35 million LG Smart TVs across the globe.
When assessing existing on-premises data centers, the company realized it needed more data capacity and highly scalable computing resources for its Smart TVs to handle the dramatic instant traffic peaks that come with broadcasting live sports events such as the World Cup and Olympic Games.
“After assessing all of our cloud platform options, we decided to migrate to AWS so we could leverage the most reliable, high-performance, and secure cloud platform available for companies around the world today. We have successfully migrated the infrastructure that powers more than 35 million internet-connected LG Smart TVs in over 150 countries worldwide to the AWS Cloud and cut operation costs by 40 percent,” said Hong-Jae Kim, Cloud Center, LG Electronics.
