InMobi Delivers Billions of Mobile Ad Impressions per Month with EDB Postgres

The Challenge

When InMobi was founded in 2007, the CTO knew that scalability and performance would be key concerns. With billions of mobile devices increasingly being used to browse the web, taking advantage of the opportunity to deliver a mobile advertising platform would require the right infrastructure. But as a startup, InMobi did not have an unlimited budget and couldn’t just turn to the traditional database vendors for a solution. InMobi needed a low-cost database solution that would meet its scalability and performance requirements, now and in the future.

The Solution

InMobi’s initial database installation took only 30 minutes, and that same installation is still running today. With the features of EDB Postgres Advanced Server and the assistance of the EDB team, the InMobi team has been able to simply add space when needed and add replication when desired without having to reinstall the database.

EDB Postgres is the backbone of everything InMobi does. There are 25 database instances across four data centers with replication implemented between them. The databases range from reporting databases that reach 600 GB to read-only transactional databases that are just 1 GB in size.

InMobi implemented its solution using a combination of Java, Python, and Perl along with technologies including Hadoop and Cassandra. With EDB and these technologies, InMobi achieved the scale it needs, with over 26 billion ad impressions per month; each ad served involving EDB Postgres. The infrastructure supports over 200,000 transactions per minute across the globe with a three-millisecond response time.

Marking Territory

Composed of business and technology leaders who had driven revenue growth at some of the world’s largest and most admired corporations, EDB today has a customer base of over 3,600 enterprises and government organizations worldwide with 17% of the Fortune 500 and 8.5% of the Fortune Global 2000.

The company has ensured that EDB remains a leading innovator in the development of PostgreSQL with an internal team of seasoned Postgres community members at the helm of this effort.
