talabat today announced its commitment to double down on its cloud strategy with Amazon Web Services (AWS) to continue innovating and responding to increased consumer demand. The migration of talabat’s core mobile application, core backend, and all of its consumer and merchant-based technologies to the world’s leading cloud supports talabat’s focus on bringing new solutions to better serve customers, drivers, and its network of over 13,000 restaurants.
Leveraging AWS, talabat’s technology team modernized their applications by adopting a microservices architecture and moved the application development process to Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (Amazon EKS), allowing it to become more agile with the ability to focus on developing new services quickly and at scale. As a result, talabat has been able to double its weekly project deployments.
talabat uses Amazon EKS to manage more than 600 containers in production, across its entire application ecosystem, including the payment gateway, restaurant platform, driver app, and the customer-facing app. This has reduced deployment time for new services such as talabat mart from fifteen days to just two. To meet the surge in demand for its services, talabat relies on another AWS managed service, Amazon Aurora, to auto-scale and process millions of transactions per day while maintaining application high availability and reliability.
