Presented by Brian Akins at RICON East 2013

Turner Broadcasting hosts several large sites that need to serve "data" to millions of clients over HTTP. A couple of years ago, we started building a generic service to solve this and to retire several legacy systems. We will discuss the general architecture, the growing pains, and why we decided to use Riak. We will also share some implementation details and the use of the service for a few large internet events.
