The Apollo project at Uber was built to support millions of analytical queries daily across real-time data. During his presentation, James will cover the architectural decisions and lessons learned building an exactly-once ingest pipeline storing raw events across in-memory row-storage and on-disk columnar-storage, and a custom metalanguage and query layer leveraging partial OLAP result set caching and query canonicalization. Putting all the pieces together provides thousands of Uber employees with subsecond p95 latency analytical queries spanning hundreds of millions of recent events.

MemSQL and Uber

Uber deployed MemSQL to complement existing systems infrastructure and deliver real-time analytics at scale. In a recent blog post, Ringing in 2017, Uber showcased groundbreaking results for its busiest time of the year, including a series of stunning geographic visualizations produced by the Apollo project. During the New Year’s eve period, Uber provided around 15 million safe rides with an average ETA for a ride of just four minutes. The graphic for the San Francisco Bay Area shows how those rides transpired across that region.

MemSQL provides the real-time geospatial analytics infrastructure for Apollo. By taking advantage of the MemSQL distributed architecture and the platform’s real-time data warehousing capabilities, Uber was able to create a comprehensive picture of its business that is instantly up to date. Uber sends real-time inputs to MemSQL, which are automatically captured and deduplicated as needed with the transactional properties of the system, including unique keys. Combined with native geospatial functions, Uber can architect dashboards for the company down to individual city specific views.
