How OpenSesame accelerated time to market on AWS with Premier Consulting Partner, Onica

About the event:

More startups are building on AWS than any other provider and for good reason: AWS provides startups with a low-cost and easy-to-use infrastructure that enables businesses to build and scale their dreams while keeping costs under control. Through leveraging serverless platforms, modern startups can develop applications that can almost instantly benefit from the scalability, reliability, and cost effectiveness of the cloud.

Join us for a virtual event with OpenSesame Media, Inc – the pioneer in social audio experiences – as we explore the advantages of AWS serverless technology to create the quickest path to production while utilizing event-driven processes to keep costs to an absolute minimum. Learn how Onica, a Rackspace Technology company, helped OpenSesame Media, Inc. build their karaoke app for scale from soft launch to massive availability across 5G phones around the world. Discover how a similar cloud-native approach can help your growing startup dream big, begin small, and scale at rapid speed.
