About Newton

Newton is a modern email client application that functions smoothly on macOS, Android, iOS, and Windows platforms. Moreover, this tool provides users numerous helpful features, such as reading receipts, email sharing via a link, and snoozing.


  • Poor customer acquisition due to obsolete features
  • Integration with multiple third-party libraries
  • High cloud infrastructure cost 
  • The existing infrastructure was complicated to maintain

Proposed Solution & Architecture

  • AWS Config empowered feature enhancements, boosting engagement and monitoring. 
  • Leveraging Amazon OpenSearch, we upgraded search, boosting user acquisition with faster, precise email and data retrieval.
  • Analyzed existing workloads and provisioned them for migration to Graviton instances for optional price-to-performance ratio. 
  • Enhanced performance optimization with AWS Graviton instanced with higher capabilities compared to x86-based instances.
  • Implemented solutions such as Amazon Elastic Block Store (EBS) for high-performance data storage.
  • Simplified data management by implementing Infrastructure as Code (IaC) and tools like AWS CloudFormation
  • Implemented AWS Auto Scaling to optimize availability and AWS Elastic Load Balancing to distribute load automatically.
  • Leveraged Amazon RDS, AWS Fargate, and AWS Lambda to abstract the underlying infrastructure for enhanced management
  • Utilized Amazon S3, AWS Glue, and Amazon Kinesis for storing, cataloging, and processing large volumes of data.
  • Orchestrated migration with Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS)
  • Strategically integrated DynamoDB for precise cost optimization.

Metrics for success

  • By deleing the dynamodb part and keep it up to efficiency
  • Reduced the cost of the existing infrastructure to 14 cents/ indexing user/month
  • Through the infrastructure we designed, Newton syncs 13 million emails daily.
  • Improved application performance by 40% while maintaining cost efficiency
  • 60% less energy consumption with higher output compared to EC2 instances.

AWS Services

  • AWS Graviton: Graviton offers a better price-to-performance ratio than X86-based EC2 instances. 
  • Load balancers: Load balancers ensure even distribution of requests between EC2 instances for optimal performance.
  • Job distribution: SQS/ Gearman: Amazon SQS and Gearman handle queuing and job distribution for service requests.
  • DynamoDB: DynamoDB stores metadata for emails and templates, enabling link tracking and read receipts in Newton.
  • Amazon S3 and RDS: Amazon S3 stores templates and attachments, enhancing user experience and enabling public email sharing.
  • SQLite storage with thrift interface: SQLite storage with a thrift interface stores email metadata for quick retrieval for up to 60 days.
  • Worker Nodes: Worker nodes, powered by EKS, manage various functions like crawling, action, notification, web services, and infrastructure management.
