Client Background

The client is prominent in the realm of Demand Side Platforms (DSP) for Programmatic Advertising, boasting a global presence spanning 11 data centers and over 5000 systems, with a staggering 60 PB of Hadoop data.The Challenges

The client grappled with challenges concerning load balancing and server weights for over 7000 internal DNS records, precipitating concerns regarding reliability, service delivery, and potential security vulnerabilities.

The client’s challenges called for the imperative to enhance perimeter security. The client also sought to streamline deployment processes, facilitating on-demand commissioning of critical components such as bidders, Adservers, Hadoop nodes, analytics, and revenue recognition services. Additionally, they aimed to ensure thorough monitoring of key performance indicators (KPIs) and automate infrastructure provisioning and patching. Addressing known issues promptly through automated resolutions triggered by events was another priority. Furthermore, the client sought to implement automated security protocols throughout the system.
