Ad4Game Deploys Infobright to Support Advertising Service Focused on Internet Gaming Audience

Fast Growing Game Ad Network Uses Infobright Database to Quickly Analyze Large Volumes of Performance-Related Campaign Metrics

NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwire) -- 11/07/12 -- ad: tech - Infobright today announced that Ad4Game, one of the Internet's leading game advertising networks, has deployed Infobright Enterprise Edition (IEE) to support analysis of growing volumes of metrics that the company uses to optimize the performance of ad campaigns that run on gaming sites worldwide. With the help of Infobright's high-performing analytic database, Ad4Game is able to quickly mine terabytes of machine-generated web data tracking ad clickthroughs and other statistics, so that it can match advertisers with the gaming content most likely to generate conversions and ROI.

Ad4Game's network represents many of the most popular online gaming companies -- including Sony Online Entertainment, Disney, Atari, Microsoft, Ubisoft, Electronic Arts and more -- reaching over 400 million unique visitors and serving billions of impressions per month. The company's customers include advertisers as well as content providers, with each relying on Ad4Game to supply detailed reports on the performance of their advertising campaigns.

"Fast, accurate campaign analytics are central to Ad4Game's value proposition," said Omar Tahiri, CEO of Ad4Game. "Our advertisers want to maximize clickthroughs and conversions. Content publishers want to optimize eCPM and earnings. This demands real-time insight into how ads are performing, so that adjustments can be made in minutes, if necessary. With Infobright, we've found a database solution that can keep up with the volume and speed of incoming data, so that Ad4Game can continue to focus on what we do best: getting results for our advertisers and content publishers."

Prior to deploying Infobright, Ad4Game was using MySQL to collect online data on ad impressions, clickthroughs, and other metrics relevant to campaign performance. But as the company's business has grown, this row-oriented database could not keep up with the massive amounts of data being generated about customers' ad campaigns, nor could it quickly turn around the kind of ad-hoc analysis necessary to optimize performance in real-time. The company selected Infobright because, like MySQL, it is very simple to use, but Infobright is also capable of running even very complex queries on large volumes of data exponentially faster. In addition, set up and implementation is extremely cost effective.

Today, queries that previously took 10 minutes or more on MySQL now take no longer than 25 seconds using Infobright. And due to the data compression (up to 57:1) that Infobright is able to deliver, Ad4Game expects to be able to scale its analytics services affordably, even as data loads reach into the terabytes.

"Ad tech companies like Ad4Game differentiate themselves by providing value-added analysis that helps customers make the most of their campaign investments," said Don DeLoach, CEO of Infobright. "Infobright's database is an ideal solution for these types of businesses because we are well-suited to analyzing online and machine-generated data fast, effectively and at a very affordable cost."

Ad4Game will be attending Adtech NY, November 7-8, 2012 in New York City. Visit the company's booth #2045.
