MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. & BANGALORE, India --(Business Wire)--
Today, Aerospike announced that Vizury-a next-generation digital
customer relationship management (CRM) company-relies on the open source
Aerospike flash-optimized in-memory NoSQL database to power its big data
platform. Using Aerospike, Vizury has been able to cut its server
requirements by 4x, reducing operating costs while scaling to process
more than 5 billion bid requests per day.

Global Growth and Mobile Solution Drive Demand for Higher Velocity
Since 2009, Vizury has provided personalized display and retargeting
solutions for companies in the e-commerce, travel and hospitality

management solution that could scale to meet growing demand, with more
storage power, while also ensuring the predictable low latency required
for real-time, personalized consumer interactions. The company evaluated
a number of open source databases with a range of storage options,
including flash-based solid-state drives (SSDs).
The results of its testing led Vizury to select the Aerospike in-memory
NoSQL database, which uses a patent-pending combination of indexes in
RAM (News - Alert) and data in direct-attached SSDs for near in-memory speed at flash

market, it became readily apparent that Aerospike's database was
uniquely suited for delivering the reliable performance and
cost-effective scaling we need to serve ur digital marketing clients,"
said Dr. Mansoor Alicherry, Vizury head of engineering.
