Time: Wednesday 15:00 - 16:00

Social networks by their nature deal with large amounts of user-generated data that must be processed and presented in a time sensitive manner. Much more write intensive than previous generations of websites, social networks have been on the leading edge of non-relational persistence technology adoption. This talk presents how Germany's leading social networks Schuelervz, Studivz and Meinvz are incorporating Redis and Project Voldemort into their platform to run features like activity streams.

Keywords: Architecture, Scalability, Project Voldemort, RabbitMQ, Redis, Nginx, Social Network
