Millions of shoppers use Reevoo to make better buying decisions in their everyday lives. Hundreds of brands all over the world use our solutions to get a better idea of what makes their customers tick.
"Reevoo is a cloud first technology and services company that has built a microservices architecture with over 40 individual applications. We migrated from a self-managed kubernetes 1.7 cluster to EKS in order to benefit from features such as AWS VPC native networking and integration with IAM. We integrate with many other AWS services including RDS and EFS for persistent kubernetes volumes.
By offloading the management of the control plane to AWS we are able to focus on improving our apps and not cluster management, which enables us to have a small Devops team to manage our application stack. We currently run over 800 pods across our various environments. We launched our new EKS environments one week before Black Friday in 2018 and successfully managed a 300% increase in traffic for our retail sector clients with no scalability issues at all."

EKS Customer References 2018
AppCard is an advanced customer retention system designed specifically to service the needs of mid-size retailers, franchises, and independent grocers who are ready to start capitalizing on the potential of their customer data and analytics.
“Kubernetes is fast becoming the preferred solution for container orchestration. Its biggest downside is that it is not simple to set up and operate. EKS gives us all the benefits of Kubernetes, but takes care of managing the hard stuff (setting up the masters and keeping them up to date and more). We can dedicate less resources to deployment and operations as result. Its integration with other AWS services such as IAM is a great plus that enables us to manage dev access from a single place. We are already using AWS services in many other areas and expect a smooth production transition to EKS.”
- Amichay Oren, Co-founder & CTO, AppCard Inc.
Spotinst provides a highly intelligent workload software to help enterprises save time and costs (up to 80%) on their cloud compute infrastructure.
“Spotinst provides an intelligent workload management that automatically optimizes your AWS infrastructures to increase performance, improve availability and lower computing costs. Spotinst uses a powerful prediction algorithm in the Amazon EC2 Spot market, that generates typical costs savings of 80-90%. Spotinst is Amazon EKS partner, it integrates with Amazon EKS and provides the ability to run cost and application-aware Autoscaling clusters by provisioning highly available Spot Instances, with real-time cost spend monitoring capabilities. Spotinst is using its EKS Autoscaler to determine the best blend of instance types from different instance families and sizes (including CPU, GPU & FPGA support) to match different containers requirements (CPU, Memory, Network, etc.) in the cluster. Spotinst also provides full visibility into EKS, allowing users to increase their performance, improve availability and lower the infrastructure costs. Spotinst has dozens of customers running production Amazon EKS clusters to provide the best experience of running Kubernetes in AWS.”
- Lavi Ferdman, VP of Sales, Spotinst

Wizeline is a global product development company. We help our clients solve their biggest challenges with design and technology.

We are using EKS to easily orchestrate our deployments with no downtime, and easily escalate, also this is helping us maximize the capacity of the servers. Most of our internal apps (bots, APIs, web) are being deployed automatically in EKS."

EKS means greater efficiency for us: through its tight integration with AWS IAM, we will be able to eliminate another authorization mechanism in our deployments. Most importantly, we expect to free up resources that can focus on other important tasks like application development, instead of Kubernetes cluster management.”
- Drew Daniels, Vice President & Chief Information Security Officer of Qubole
