NoSQL learnings from the world of Telco

A session at Topconf Tallinn 2012

Friday 2nd November, 2012

3:00pm to 3:45pm (TMT)

Being a decent-sized Telecommunications provider, we process a lot of calls (hundreds/second), and need to keep track of all the events on each call. Technically speaking, this is "A Lot" of data - data that our clients (and our own people!) want real-time access to in a myriad of ways. We've ended up going through quite a few NoSQL stores in our quest to satisfy everyone - and the way we do things now has very little to do with where we started out. Join me as I describe our experience and what we've learned, focusing on the Big 4, viz
-The "solution-oriented" nature of NoSQL repeatedly changed our understanding of our problem-space - sometimes drastically.
- The system behavior , particularly the failure modes, were significantly different at scale
-The software model kept getting overhauled - regardless of how much we planned ahead
-We came to value agility - the ability to change direction - above all (yes, even at a Telco!)
