Super Evil Megacorp is on a mission to be the best online and mobile gaming experience in the world. But that quest was in peril when their platform reached maximum capacity. Couchbase proved to be the perfect solution. It enabled the company to migrate their game modules and player accounts without any downtime – and now Couchbase delivers sub-millisecond latency while getting back more data than before. Multi-dimensional scaling allows Super Evil Megacorp to flexibly grow its architecture however and whenever it needs to. And because they can use commodity hardware, the company expects to cut its database costs by 60%-70%.

 

“With Couchbase, we know we can scale to accommodate even 10x growth. As a result, we can expand our business without our technology slowing us down.”

Dwayn Matthies
Senior Platform Engineer, Super Evil Megacorp
