Badoo is a dating-focused social networking service. The site operates in 180 countries and is most popular in Latin America, Spain, Italy and France. Badoo is being used by tens of million users on a monthly basis. Business Intelligence department is receiving, processing and storing around 200 000 events per second from around 150 various data sources. We will be talking about the technology behind Business Intelligence at Badoo, the challenges we face, it's evolution, success stories and our failures. Starting with a cluster of mysql servers, we gradually moved to Hadoop, Spark Streaming and Exasol. We will explain the reasons behind our choices, problems we solved and problems we gained.
