Scaling Hotstar for 25 million concurrent viewers

Submitted Feb 16, 2024

For Hotstar, autoscaling doesn’t really work for large events like the Cricket World Cup, which usually has a Tsunami-like traffic pattern - a typical app killer. Scaling to 25.3 million concurrent viewers on the day of the event involves multiple Game Days and load tests. Gaurav Kamboj, Cloud Architect at Hotstar, shares how Hotstar got through the epic scale event that was the IPL Cricket World Cup, employing battle-tested scaling strategies, traffic load simulations and chaos (engineering), ensuring a smooth viewing experience for their customers at scale.
