All-in on Couchbase for easy-to-manage performance and scalability

Flutter Entertainment plc (formerly Paddy Power Betfair plc) is a global sports betting, gaming, and entertainment provider for over 18 million customers worldwide. The company was created by the merger of Paddy Power and Betfair, and the later acquisition of The Stars Group. Paddy Power Betfair switched to Couchbase for the scalability, high performance, easy integration, and continuous delivery they needed to process 500K events every 3 minutes for more than 7 million active customers.
