Gawker Turns to Typesafe for Extreme Scale

After Gawker Media made the move to consolidate a previously fragmented infrastructure under a JVM based umbrella, they selected the Typesafe Platform as a natural choice to help manage their extreme scalability requirements. Gawker experiences over 80 million unique page visitors monthly, produces eight original brands with a collective audience of tens of millions of US readers, and has a development team split between the US and Europe- needless to say scale and a robust platform are necessities to help manage growth!

The Typesafe Platform aids Gawker in maintaining a very aggressive development and deployment cycle, all in a fail-forward manner and now it is the default choice for all of their new services. Check out the full case study to learn more!
