Blog chronicles engineering challenges of large online networks.
What’s it like building technology for a business that sees over 300 million unique visitors each month? A new blog will help shed some light.
Oversee.net’s engineering team has just started a new blog called Regularly Expressed.
In one of the first blog posts, Oversee.net Director of Technology and Program Management for Monetization Terrence Lui discusses the traffic the company deals with:
“…Oversee.net manages one of the biggest networks on the internet. In any given month, Oversee.net sees over 300 million unique users. It processes in excess of 2.5 billion events. It has over 10 million domains under management. And because it is a global company, Oversee.net’s network is operational 24/7/365. These are big numbers. Because of this, we have had to develop innovative solutions to reach this scale.”
The goal of the blog is to reach out to customers and other companies facing similar data challenges to those of Oversee.net.
If the company has built customized systems for handling lots of data, it should consider commercializing them by licensing the technology to ISVs. There’s money to be made.
