Case Study: See Why SmartThings Chose Micronaut to Achieve Speed and Scale

A leading IoT device network recognized a need to transition away from its legacy monolith architecture to a more flexible microservices-based system and selected Micronaut to achieve speed and scale.

Speed and accuracy are the key benchmarks consumers assess when selecting a home automation platform.

SmartThings, a subsidiary of Samsung Electronics, provides consumers at-home IoT experiences through a range of sensors, smart devices, and digital apps. To better serve its growing customer base, the company recognized a need to transition from its monolithic architecture to a lightweight microservices system.

After attempting to build a scalable solution using Ratpack, SmartThings’ technical leadership turned to Micronaut, an open source JVM framework specifically designed for building scalable, highly performant microservices and serverless applications.
