Business Challenge story

Fitness startup RunKeeper’s existing database was unable to scale easily to support the company’s expansion. As new users joined, this limitation threatened to bring growth to a wheezing halt.


RunKeeper chose IBM® Cloudant® Dedicated Cluster as its new data layer, gaining a database-as-a-service solution running on an elastic and highly scalable global cloud.


Offers a concise, always-on app experience to a growing user base. Eliminates database administration, freeing up staff to focus on user experience. Offers fast and practically unlimited scalability.
