NextRoll Cuts Compute Costs by 50% Using AWS Graviton2–based Amazon EC2 Instances
NextRoll builds its industry-leading marketing technology and data stack on Amazon Web Services (AWS) to fuel growth for businesses of all kinds via AdRoll, RollWorks, and NextRoll Platform Services. The company processes more than 150 billion requests per day and ingests 600 terabytes of data daily. Most recently, NextRoll migrated two large pieces of its infrastructure to Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) instances with AWS Graviton processors. In this video with Valentino Volonghi, CTO at NextRoll, hear how the company built on AWS over the past decade to leverage new services and deliver innovation for its customers.
"At NextRoll we are focused on providing the innovative solutions companies need to keep growing, wherever their ambition takes them next," says Volonghi. "To do that we are always seeking new ways to expand and optimize our service offerings. We are excited to adopt AWS Graviton2–based EC2 M6g and C6g instances for our web server and stream processing workloads built on Erlang, Go, and Java. We have observed up to 50 percent total cost savings over our previous generation EC2 instances for these workloads. Much more savings and fewer instances needed with higher performance. All software packages that we needed to migrate were easily available and we plan to switch everything we can to Graviton2-based EC2 instances."
