Walt Disney is using AWS as its preferred public cloud
The streamer is using over 50 different technologies from AWS, including machine learning, database, storage, content delivery, serverless, and analytics.
Among the services being used by the streamer are Amazon Kinesis (a service to collect, process, and analyse real-time, streaming data) and Amazon DynamoDB to ingest content, metadata, and enables viewers to start watching a video and pick it up on a different device.
Disney Plus is also employing Amazon Timestream (AWS’s serverless, time-series database built for large scale ingestion, storage, and real-time querying of times-series data) to monitor the efficacy of their streaming platform.
“Disney Plus has completely reinvented what’s possible in content delivery by challenging convention and using cloud technology to build a streaming product from scratch that had never been launched and marketed before on such a global scale,” said Joe Inzerillo, executive vice president & CTO, direct-to-consumer, The Walt Disney Company. “AWS has been our preferred cloud provider for years, and its proven global infrastructure and expansive suite of services has contributed meaningfully to the incredible success of Disney Plus.”
