BANGALORE, India and SUNNYVALE, Calif., May 23 (Bernama-GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — ScyllaDB announced today that ZEE5 is now using its high-performance database for its rapidly growing streaming business. By moving from DynamoDB to ScyllaDB Cloud (a fully managed database-as-a-service solution compatible with both DynamoDB and Cassandra), ZEE5 is able to handle an increased volume of database traffic faster, and at significantly lower costs.
Zee Entertainment Enterprises Ltd. (ZEEL) is a leading media and entertainment company that operates over 80 channels. The company distributes content to nearly 1.3 billion viewers over 190 countries. ZEE5, the OTT arm of ZEEL, is currently using ScyllaDB to power its watch history functionality and is in the process of moving additional business-critical content streaming use cases to ScyllaDB. The team behind this move anticipates that database traffic could triple in the next year; this move proactively prepares their infrastructure to respond to this massive scale.
