Josh Glover, Software Engineer at Videoplaza, will introduce you to the domain of video advertising and show how Videoplaza uses Apache Cassandra as part of a system that solves the difficult problem of allowing clients to analyse the performance of their advertising campaigns in real-time. Videoplaza needs to aggregate data for tens of thousands of combinations of dimensions and metrics for hundreds of clients from an incoming stream of thousands of requests per second, and do it fast enough so that clients can see trends as they happen.
