As mobile devices and broadband connectivity becomes even more embedded into the way we work and live, the highly competitive telecommunication services market is driven by the need to provide innovative services such as video streaming, Internet of Things (IoT), Smart Cities, and mobile payments. Consumers and businesses are demanding more services at lower cost with instant access and global availability.
Modern telecommunication and Internet Service Providers (ISPs) face the challenge of offering new types of services, provisioning them quickly and increasing uptime — all while maintaining accurate usage records for millions of customers.
Riak is designed to handle the complex, contextual data that Telcos and ISPs generate. Riak ensures fast, scalable reads and writes for distributed Big Data and IoT applications, helping Telcos and ISPs build services and apps that are responsive, highly reliable, and massively scalable.
Comcast Cable, one of the largest US service providers, deployed Riak KV as the primary backend data store for their Highly Available Object Storage System (HOSS) — handling thousands of users per second. Today, the data in HOSS is used to power features like streaming premium content and remote DVR control. Comcast chose Riak for highly available, flexible object storage and increased developer agility.
