AWS re:Invent 2015 | (MBL314) How Sonos Leverages Amazon Kinesis

Published on Oct 10, 2015

Sonos is a smart system of hi-fi wireless speakers and audio components. It unites your digital music collection in one app that you control from any device. Sonos leverages the Amazon Kinesis stream-processing platform to run near real-time streaming analytics on device data logs from connected Sonos hi-fi audio equipment. It analyzes usage, performance, quality logs, and other data feeds collected from Sonos-connected devices in near real-time to better understand its customer experience. In this session, Sonos will focus on the design and architecture considerations that drove their selection of AWS services for their platform, diving deep on Amazon Kinesis and Amazon DynamoDB. They will discuss architecture tradeoffs, such as Kinesis vs. Kafka and using its device data to gain some insights that differentiate Sonos in the music industry.
