Abstract

When Adfonic launched a global self-service platform for mobile advertisers, publishers and app developers in 2009, real-time reporting and analytics was a key ingredient of our initial success. Little did we know that within a couple of years, we'd be handling more than 15 billion ad requests a month, meaning in excess of 10,000 inserts per second during peak load. This session will focus on the tools used, including MySQL Cluster, the open source Mondrian ROLAP business intelligence tool, and a series of homegrown innovations that keep data flowing with near instant availability to our customers. Along the way, we'll discuss limitations of current technologies and where the quest for tenfold growth might take us.
