A a NYC based startup, Voxy is a personalized language learning platform that uses a website, iPhone and Android apps to help people learn English, Spanish or Portugese.
With over 1 million users worldwide, Voxy is heavily data driven. With the simultaneous growth of the user base and amount of data they needed to analyze, Voxy hit a performance limit on the existing RDBMS-based system. We were hired to build a solution that will allow them to scale easily and handle significantly larger volumes of data. The solution, built on Hadoop/Hive, fully integrates with their data collection system and external data vendors, allowing their in-house data analytics team to tap into a much larger pool of data with an easily scalable reporting and usage analysis platform.
