Stevie_Award-Internap-ABA14Internap was honored to receive a bronze Stevie® Award in the New Product or Service of the Year – Software – Big Data Solution category at the 12th Annual American Business Awards on September 12, 2014. The award honors Internap and Aerospike for creating the industry’s first “fast big data” platform, which runs Aerospike’s hybrid NoSQL databases on Internap’s bare-metal servers.

The combined solution from Internap and Aerospike enables developers to quickly deploy applications that demand predictable, high performance in a cost-effective hosted environment. Big data workloads and other computationally intensive applications require higher levels of performance and throughput than traditional virtualized cloud infrastructure can provide.

Benchmark tests comparing similar virtual and bare-metal cloud configurations show Internap’s bare-metal cloud yields superior CPU, RAM, storage and internal network performance. In many cases, organizations require 8x fewer bare-metal servers than virtualized servers, resulting in decreased IT equipment cost, less power usage and a smaller data center footprint.

The eXelate use case
eXelate is the smart data company that powers smarter digital marketing decisions worldwide for marketers, agencies, platforms, publishers and data providers. eXelate’s platform provides accurate, actionable, and agile data and analytics on online household demographics, purchase intent and behavioral propensities.

Aerospike’s hybrid NoSQL database allows eXelate to use at least 12x fewer servers than in-memory database solutions with lower storage capacity (740GB of storage as opposed to 64GB available with in-memory database solutions). This enables massive volume real-time data storage and continual read/write back to the Aerospike cluster..

By running the Aerospike NoSQL databases on Internap bare-metal servers in four data centers around the world, eXelate is able to process 2 TB of data per day and ingest over 60 billion transactions per month for more than 200 publishers and marketers across multiple geographic regions.
