Japanese culture is all about making systems fast, efficient, and customer-friendly. Which is why one of Japan’s biggest retailers, TOKYU HANDS, turned to AWS DynamoDB to create its POS system.
Like most other companies, TOKYU HANDS started with an on-site data center, which turned into a burden as the company grew in size and customer base. To maintain cost-efficiency, TOKYU HANDS decided to migrate several of their services to the cloud.
In particular, their e-commerce system needed a powerful and scalable database that could handle spikes in traffic, especially during sales. Rather than continually upgrade their equipment, they turned to Amazon DynamoDB.
DynamoDb provided a scalable and reliable database that did not require any maintenance at all from TOKYU HANDS. Their new databases accepted extra burdens easily and scaled back when the sales were done, letting the company save money.
As such, TOKYU HANDS took the next step and created a POS system using Amazon S3, SQS, and SNS. In the end, they managed to craft a system that was simultaneously cost-effective, worry-free, and easy to de’velop and maintain.
