Swiggy’s food delivery platform: 20% faster queries
How India’s leading food ordering and delivery platform addressed the challenges of replacing its legacy data warehouse for better business service.
Founded in 2014, Swiggy is the leading hyperlocal food ordering and delivery platform in India. The company processes millions of customer orders each month, with more than 160,000 restaurants on its platform and 250,000 delivery partners.
Swiggy’s legacy data warehouse was a burden. It was frequently afflicted with memory leaks, which could cause queries to stall or be blocked. The issue occurred during peak morning hours, grinding business to a halt. In addition to troubleshooting the frequent memory leaks, Swiggy’s Data Platform team had to support the infrastructure by doing capacity planning, monitoring and upgrades, and managing authentication and authorization.
The Data Platform team needed a higher-performing and more stable cloud solution that relieved it from managing the infrastructure. Find out how Swiggy addressed this challenge to achieve 20% faster processing of food delivery queries.
