Scaling and Securing Infrastructure Handling Billions of Requests a Day

Download Case Study


The overall business goal at AppLovin is to help developers get discovered in a competitive landscape. To do this, they need a robust infrastructure that can securely handle billions of requests per day and can securely and reliably scale across the environment. 


Use Chef to automate as many processes as possible and to increase security across the board. Develop a consistent test-driven approach for automating and deploying a diverse set of applications and environments. 


Applovin is now able to automate their infrastructure, ensuring that systems can adapt and move fast enough to handle the growing needs of the company. They have also been able to:

  • Increase node initialization procedures and other operations by tenfold
  • Enable AppLovin to secure its infrastructure with little to no overhead
  • Chef’s flexibility around domain languages allowed them to build custom plug-ins and up-level their work
