Customer Case Study: Untappd

Untappd - Drink Socially

ObjectRocket helped Untappd increase performance and cost efficiency by moving
processes from MySQL to MongoDB, Elasticsearch, and Redis.

Untapped uses MongoDB for geo-centric queries, enabling them to run faster at a lower cost.

Redis was added for its strength as an in-memory data store, making it the best solution to use as a counter.

The application’s main social activity feed and analytics were switched from MongoDB to Elasticsearch, eliminating the creation of thousands of extraneous docs, ultimately cutting cost for that workload by 75%.

Additionally, Elasticsearch with Kibana quickly and easily provided regional sales teams using Untappd for Business insights to app users in a given area for ad targeting.

“There are parts of the app that are completely powered by ObjectRocket. They provide stability in the platform so that we can actually continue to build our app and not worry about those pieces being up all the time,” says Avola, now CTO of Untappd. “We can focus on the important parts of our app, which is gaining users, gaining traction, and building new features.”
