6/02: 20,000 Creative Market Shops Turn Passion into Opportunity Using AWS and Amazon EF – #AWS

By using Amazon Elastic File System (Amazon EFS) as storage for over one million image files and for the staging of shop owners product files, Creative Market was able to replace the use of their Gluster solution. This completely eliminated the administrative complexities of their Gluster solution and provided them with consistent performance, on-demand scalability, and 95 percent annual savings. Creative Market offers independent creatives a platform where they can open shops to sell their digital creations—fonts, graphics, themes, photos, and software add-ons—to more than three million members. Shop owners set their own prices and keep 70 percent of their sales, leaving payment processing, distribution, and marketing to Creative Market.
