New case study and NoSQL Roadshow presentation examine how Adfonic processes 100 billion ad impressions each month with Aerospike to determine the best mobile ad placements
MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. - The need to reach millions of mobile users with the right ad at the right time is upping the ante for scale and speed. No one understands that better than Adfonic. The company’s mobile advertising buying platform gives advertisers and agencies access to global mobile Web and application inventory through a single buying point. A new case study examines how Adfonic relies on the Aerospike real-time NoSQL database to process more than 100 billion global ad impressions per month across nearly 250 million unique mobile users. The full Adfonic case study is available at: http://www.aerospike.com/why-aerospike/customers.
The Adfonic mobile ad buying platform enables customers to run performance, rich media and video ad campaigns across a wide range of inventory sources to drive direct responses, increase consumer engagement, and build brand awareness. Aerospike works with Adfonic’s Madison mobile demand-side platform (DSP), which uses real-time bidding to enable mobile ad inventory to be bought and sold on a per-impression basis, via a programmatic instantaneous auction.
Adfonic Case Study
The new case study examines the business and technology factors that led the company to choose Aerospike. It also reviews how Adfonic has deployed Aerospike clusters in its hub and three data centers to bring data closer to customers and ensure 100% uptime. Key benefits that Adfonic has realized with Aerospike include:
- Helps enable real-time processing of more than 100 billion mobile ad impressions each month.
- Reliably responds to queries within 5 milliseconds, while handling 100,000 queries per second.
- Supports time-to-live (TTL) values by automatically deleting expired data to maximize database efficiency and performance.
- Enables real-time replication and rapid synchronization between Adfonic’s hub and three data centers across the US and Europe.
- Ensures continuity and availability even if one data center experiences a failure.
