Database Scaling with AWS

We at Courseplay are excited to announce that as we grow, we are utilizing advanced and more powerful AWS services to ensure our platform remains scalable and available to all our clients at the most economical cost.

Courseplay is a cloud-native product which sits on top of AWS storage layers and utilizes multiple AWS services. Due to the unexpected impact caused by the Covid-19 crisis, we have increased our database footprint to suit the increased demand. In the first phase we have been testing the load on larger servers and fine-tuning our parameters to understand what size of DB is required. In the second phase we will offer long term commitments to AWS in order to secured a discounted price-point that will bring down the cost of the service we offer our customers.

We believe this investment in our database architecture, and in our relationship with AWS, allows Courseplay to scale and leverage the latest technologies for our clients.
