Big Data at Disney

Disney faces data scale and latency requirements across various business segments that have outpaced the ability of traditional relational data stores to keep up. At Disney Technology and Shared Services, we are tasked with providing cross-company solutions. In order to address this problem we have developed a Data-as-a-Service platform that encompasses several NoSQL Technologies, including Cassandra, to enable different developer groups at Disney to meet those scale and latency requirements without having to ramp up and acquire deep domain knowledge of the underlying storage platforms.
