AWS re:Invent 2018: Becoming a Nimble Giant: How Amazon DynamoDB Serves Nike at Scale (DAT320)


In this session, learn how Nike Digital migrated their large clusters of Cassandra and Couchbase to a fully managed Amazon DynamoDB. We share how Cassandra and Couchbase proved to be operationally challenging for engineering teams and failed to meet the needs to scale up for high-traffic product launches. We discuss how DynamoDB’s flexible data model allows Nike to focus on innovating for our consumer experiences without managing database clusters. We also share the best practices we learned on how to effectively use DynamoDB’s TTL, Auto Scaling, on-demand backups, point-in-time recovery, and adaptive capacity for applications that require scale, performance, and reliability to meet Nike’s business requirements.
