SamKnows Exceeds Delivery Timeframe
and Supports Exponential Data Growth
With Calpont InfiniDB
Collecting tens of millions of rows per day, SamKnows did not have months to devote to developing a completely different data structure. Faced with large data sets and queries, the broadband performance monitoring leader had a looming data management problem: even 1/10th of the projected data size was a struggle for the company's three-year-old MySQL system. SamKnows needed a big data and ad hoc query solution -- and it needed it fast.
This case study describes the company's successful conversion to a columnar database with Calpont's InfiniDB solution.
“We did not want to spend months developing a completely different data structure. The Calpont InfiniDB columnar data engine fit the bill on many levels. They delivered fantastic price versus performance, required little redevelopment effort, and met the ad hoc query demands of our end users.”
