“ We did a migration from our existing CouchDB environment over to Cloudant and our map reduce and rebuilds went from days to hours to complete. Needless to say our customers were very happy with us. ”
Jonathan Jackson, Founder and CEO, Dimagi
Dimagi is a privately held, for profit, social enterprise that develops mobile applications to help governments and international healthcare agencies bring basic healthcare services to developing countries and under-served populations.
Although Apache CouchDB™ met many technical requirements, it could not scale easily to support business and data growth with Dimagi’s existing architecture. Performance issues were taking time from core development.
Dimagi selected IBM® Cloudant™ Dedicated Cluster as its new data layer, gaining a robust, high-performance, database-as-a-service solution, operating on an elastic and scalable global cloud.
Using IBM® Cloudant™, Dimagi now has the scalability to support a growing global user-base; eliminating database administration, enabling greater focus on core development; which enables care teams to access clinical data faster in the field.
