Bandwidth.com Solves Bid Data Analytics Challenges with InfiniDB
The challenge for Intework was to provide a viable analytical solution to reduce query times from 8 days to under a minute for closer to real time search results. Search queries in the RDBMS also tended to raise nearly as many questions as answers when retrieving aggregate data. In the ultra competitive, rapidly changing telecommunications landscape it is crucial to improve decision making efficiency in order to stay ahead of the competition and to remain viable in a fluctuating marketplace.
This case study reveals how the integration of MySQL at the front end of InfiniDB assisted in a smooth transition due to our users' familiarity with the interface. Migration from the older RDBMS was also made easier by the built-in database automation features, which let system administrators easily set up reminders and alerts for problems that can
affect system performance.
