MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. - The global online advertising industry is on the brink of a revolution. Around the world, real-time bidding (RTB) is transforming the business of display media by allowing marketers to bid for individual online users’ ad impressions in real time while paying only what they want. Leading the charge in Japan is So-net Media Networks, an arm of So-net Entertainment Corporation, which offers of one of the country’s leading advertising distribution services.
A new case study published today by Aerospike outlines how So-net Media Networks’ Logicad demand-side platform (DSP) uses the Aerospike real-time NoSQL database as a reliable Web-scale data store to manage more than 500 million unique user records. The full So-net Media Networks case study is available at: http://www.aerospike.com/why-aerospike/customers.
So-net Media Networks’ Logicad DSP features a robust system infrastructure that rapidly and reliably processes massive volumes of distribution logs and audience data. It also uses a distinctive algorithm to distribute ads with RTB functionality that maximizes the effectiveness of display ads placed by advertisers.
The new case study examines the business and technical demands that led So-net Media Networks to select Aerospike, along with an overview of how the real-time database has been implemented to support the Logicad DSP. Key benefits the Aerospike database is providing So-net Media Networks include:
- Predictably meets the need to respond within 10 milliseconds.

- Manages over 500 million unique user records and 2 TB of data for the Logicad DSP.
- Delivers 24×7 high availability, and the scale-out architecture supports So-net Media Networks’ plans for business expansion.
- Aerospike was 1/20th the cost of the equivalent DRAM alternative.
