The Road to Real-Time Analytics: A Database Success Story
Integrated-media advertising company Engage:BDR had a network of MySQL servers with a 1-master and 15-slave replication setup – but this infrastructure environment was causing some major problems:
- The master could not keep up with the insert workload
- Reports and analytics running on slaves were too slow
- Inconsistent numbers due to slaves falling behind
- And more
To solve their database issues, Engage:BDR turned to a system that appears as a single database to their applications. This case study explores the success that Engage:BDR found with the right database – which allowed the company to make real-time analytics a breeze.
