AWS Case Study: Flipboard
Magazines have always provided a way to share ideas through beautiful pictures and stories – but cloud computing has helped to drastically increase audience size. Today, one company is helping its 100 million readers to discover, view, and share content across their social networks – and is adding a quarter of a million readers every day.
In this case study, Flipboard, one of the world’s first social magazines, has incorporated Amazon Web Services (AWS) services as follows:
- Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud for all server side processing from handing end user requests to data crunching, including a good sized Hadoop infrastructure
- Amazon SimpleDB for operational data
- Amazon Simple Storage Service and Amazon CloudFront for static and dynamic content distribution
- And much more
