A Database Month event

Network and data access latency can kill mobile app performance. This problem is even more difficult to solve when building a mobile application that needs global availability. Grindr, a leading mobile dating app used by millions of people in over 200 countries, overcame a series of performance challenges which enabled us to bring our service as close to our customers as possible.

In this TechTalk you will learn:

• How network and data access latency can devastate your application.

• How to architect your mobile cloud architecture using Redis to provide the best performance in all countries around the world.

• How managed services can help in achieve globally scalable mobile cloud architecture.
