    CHALLENGE

    This international sports betting and gaming operator manages betting exchanges globally, requiring the ingesting and analysis of large volumes of data in real-time.

     

    They generate 350k market reads per second regularly. During peak periods, tens of thousands of bet transactions were processed per second. Daily transactions surpass all the financial exchanges combined. As the dominant supplier of market prices to people, it is no surprise that not everyone acts in good faith. Hackers worldwide would frequently attempt to steal data for fun and profit. Yet, inefficiencies in how data was ingested and analyzed gave minimal visibility to capture fraudulent transactions in real-time.

    WHY KX?

    Due to the nature of the business, it must manage large volumes of data very quickly. When large events such as a Grand National occurs, the accuracy of streaming real-time data is mission-critical.

     

    At times like this, the company handles 130 megabytes per second of compressed streaming price data to be used by its customer base. They needed a streaming analytics solution that could efficiently ingest data and process these large volumes of data in real-time. After comparing performance results against other vendors, KX was a clear choice.
