The customer

AppTweak was launched in 2014 by a passionate international team of over 40 people, based in Brussels, San Francisco, Bengaluru and Tokyo. Today, AppTweak is ASO leader providing mobile marketers and app publishers with all the data and insights they need to increase their app or game’s visibility, boost organic downloads and find new growth opportunities.

"Skyscrapers is managing our Kubernetes clusters, making sure it is always up-to-date, healthy and making sure everything is running smoothly" - Alexandre Mathieu, CTO AppTweak

The challenge

When AppTweak came to Skyscrapers they made it clear they wanted to scale up their business within a stable and secure environment. The company was dealing with two main challenges. First of all the speed at which competitors were growing and secondly the increasing amount of data that needs to be processed in order to keep supporting customers.

Skyscrapers offered a solution using Kubernetes on Amazon Web Services by keeping everything up-to-date and up and running. Having a large number of services, Kubernetes allows AppTweak to scale up and orchestrate all their containers creating a unified view of their complete cloud platform and services.

Why Skyscrapers

AppTweak was looking for a partner that would not only just build and monitor a scalable Kubernetes platform for their services platform, but also one who could provide guidance and advice on where to focus when processing large amounts of data.

“Kubernetes is allowing us to orchestrate all of our services and have a unified view of the platform. Skyscrapers takes care of managing the platform and guides our development team. In summary: we can focus all of our time and energy on building our applications.” - Alexandre Mathieu, CTO AppTweak

Under an SRE-as-a-Service cooperation, Skyscrapers manages the Kubernetes platform on Amazon Web Services and guides the development team so AppTweak can focus on their business. Reducing time spent on monitoring data and infrastructures by themselves allows AppTweak to focus on their applications. A job well done!

The Results

The overall collaboration was a great success:

  • Unified infrastructure overview
  • Processing vital metrics and actionable insights on a larger scale
  • Stable Amazon Web Services cloud platform
  • Increased focus on service optimization and cloud platform
  • Foundation for accelerated growth
