DICE Scales with MongoDB to Battle Touting and Help Fans Buy Tickets With No Booking Fees

DICE Scales with MongoDB to Battle Touting and Help Fans Buy Tickets With No Booking Fees

August 30, 2016

DICE is a mobile app where users can buy face value tickets to the best gigs, club nights and festivals with no booking fees. Or as the Guardian explained it: “DICE aims to take tickets out of the hands of touts and put them into the phones of fans.”

Part of providing that seamless experience meant that DICE needed a database that could handle massive traffic in a very short space of time, as the site is swamped when popular tickets go on sale. To get that massive scale DICE relies on MongoDB to build a ticketing application that can have high performance with thousands of operations a second.

As DICE CTO, Mio Nilsson, wrote last year: “Having MongoDB at the heart of our application strategy means we’re in a place where we feel very good about scaling this wonderful, crazy idea - best gigs, no booking fees.”
