  • Freecharge scales up and cuts costs with Amazon DynamoDB shift

    Freecharge, an Axis Bank digital payments arm, faced scaling issues with their Aerospike database for their identity management system (IMS), handling 1 million daily requests. They switched to Amazon DynamoDB, a serverless, fully-managed service, enhancing performance and reducing costs by 60% compared to Aerospike.

    The migration to DynamoDB streamlined data modeling, enabled automatic scaling, and cut operational efforts. Notable aspects included a unified table design, a step-by-step migration for continuous service, and DynamoDB's adeptness at managing traffic surges.

    For a detailed account of Freecharge's IMS optimization with DynamoDB, refer to the complete blog post.
