Comic Relief raises over GBP75m with help of MongoDB
The platform could handle 10,000 call centre operators simultaneously and a maximum of 500 donations per second. MongoDB was selected for its capacity to deal with large spikes in activity.
Tim Savage, co-founder of Armakuni , said: “During a national live TV show, the culmination of a 10 week national media onslaught, there is absolutely no second chance to get it right.”
Phil Latham at Comic Relief said: “This year’s Red Nose Day was a great success. The scalability, flexibility and resilience of the platform meant that, for the first time, the technology was not a limiting factor in raising as much money as possible.”
