New case study examines how Spacyz’s ad platform uses Aerospike to deliver cost-effective sub-millisecond performance while managing 2 billion objects each day
MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. - For Spacyz, the power of advertising comes from high-speed, high-availability data that seamlessly connects people to personalized offers. The company delivers Japan’s leading open, multi-device advertising platform—providing marketers and publishers with a variety of ad technology solutions to support their campaigns. A new case study examines how Spacyz uses the natively flash-optimized Aerospike real-time NoSQL database and key-value store to manage more than 2 billion user records each day while delivering sub-millisecond response times and 100% uptime. The full Spacyz case study is available at http://www.aerospike.com/why-aerospike/customers.
Spacyz’s platform solutions include adcloudFP, which provides publishers with flexible ad management through high-performance ad servers, adcloudFN, an all-in-one ASP (application service provider) service for ad networks; and adcloudEX, an ad exchange delivering centralized ad and inventory control. More recently, Spacyz expanded its platform with the appgear advertising distribution solution, which includes a demand-side platform (DSP) and data management platform (DMP) powered by Aerospike.
The new case study examines Spacyz’s move to compete with other DSP providers by providing a cost-effective solution offering predictable real-time performance. It also reviews how Aerospike supports this solution by delivering low latency, high throughput, and high availability along with automated load management and self-managing cluster capabilities to minimize the need for manual support. Key benefits that Spacyz has realized with Aerospike include:
- Manages 2 billion user records each day to support the Spacyz appgear DSP.
- Delivers predictable high performance, high availability, and 100% uptime even during automatic data rebalancing, rolling upgrades, and background backups and restores.
- Significantly reduces the number of servers that must be installed, configured, and maintained due to native support for flash and solid-state drives (SSDs).
- Lowers operational costs by 50% through automated and self-managing cluster capabilities that eliminate the need for human intervention.
“Competing on the value of cost-effectiveness has two dimensions: superior performance and pricing. Using Aerospike to power our DSP enables us to excel at both,” said Mr. Daiki Sato, Spacyz CEO. “Not only does Aerospike allow us to offer predictable real-time performance, we are also reducing our human resource demands by more than 50%, a savings that lets us give customers more for their investment.”
“As a leader in Japan’s ad technology market, Spacyz understands the central role of data in enabling online advertisers to make the right offer, at the right time, and at the right cost,” said Brian Bulkowski, Aerospike founder and CTO. “We are excited by Spaczy’s success in using our Aerospike database to deliver a compelling alternative to existing DSPs that combines comprehensive functionality and sub-millisecond performance at an attractive price point for marketing organizations of all sizes.”
