About this event

Scaling Content Management Solution and their native IOS, Android apps are currently the only way to purchase their flights online, other than calling their customer service of course. It is very critical for their business to also show relevant marketing content such as promotional offers, hero images and targeted ads.

While the data that needs to be processed is not in large volumes, the large volume of traffic demands a system that can handle thousands of transaction per second. There is also a need to show targeted ads based on customer analysis.
