Blind ultramarathon runner Simon Wheatcroft trains without a guide using Runkeeper. The app's sound-and-touch interface and geo-spatial data inform Simon how far he has run and his pace. Runkeeper’s developers use IBM Cloudant database-as-a-service (DBaaS) rather than building and managing databases in-house. Runkeeper manages:
• 50 million users with all data saved in triplicate
• 120,000 global data requests every second
• 50 terabytes of data across more than 100 types of connected devices
The IBM Mobile Platform simplifies and speeds development so Runkeeper's developers can focus on the user experience and features.
