As an SAAS internet advertising services company, OpenX has the challenge of serving ads for many large companies. In 2011, OpenX served around 1 trillion ads, and it 2012 is estimated to serve 4 trillion. At peak times they serve over 1 million ads a second. An additional challenge is that ads must be served in just a few hundred milliseconds.
In order to meet these challenges OpenX leveraged first riak_core, then later open source Riak and eventually Enterprise Riak. In this talk I'll talk about our history with other databases like MySql, Cassandra and CouchDB, and how we settled on Riak (or riak_core based systems) for all our serve time data needs.
