The Challenge

Ancestry has more than three million paying subscribers and a collection of over 20 billion records. The company moved its operations to the cloud to enable it to scale with its customer base and implemented CI/CD processes to facilitate rapid feature rollout. However, with rapid growth in both its user base and the range of products it provides, Ancestry was hard-pressed to ensure that it was achieving optimum performance, efficiency, and customer experience with its cloud applications, while also efficiently spending their cloud budget. Ancestry was looking to:

  • Successfully implement cloud cost optimization
  • Determine efficient runtime settings
  • Improve performance predictability
  • Protect and improve user experience
  • Expedite new code releases
