Case Studies

Unique use cases,
a common thread

The use case for Aiven’s services range from the traditional to the high tech, but they all have one common thread:

Databases are not their core business but data is essential to their success.

From small to large, traditional to technology driven, we are proud to help customers of all sizes and verticals accomplish their goals.

Stanford SSI pushes the space tech envelope with Aiven InfluxDB

Stanford SSI, Stanford’s largest project-based student group, is active in everything from high-altitude balloons to rockets. Aiven worked with their balloon team to provide a reliable, easy-to-use service to stream data back from their record-breaking balloon platform, ValBal. As a result, they were able to stream over a GB of data from their platform at over 200 km away at the edge of space.

The problem

Stanford SSI needed a database to handle the data characteristics unique to aerospace and their new high-bandwidth communications system. After choosing open-source InfluxDB, they fruitlessly spent hours attempting to provision it.

The solution

After a simple Google search, they found Aiven and were able to provision an Aiven InfluxDB service in minutes with the click of a few buttons.

The outcome

They were able to stream over a GB of data from their platform at over 200 km away at the edge of space.

The high-bandwidth communications system that Aiven’s InfluxDB forms an integral part of will drive further development of ValBal and SSI as a whole.

Aiven frees Kyyti from worrying about database infrastructure

Kyyti Group provides a Mobility as a Service app that makes daily travel easy by solving the first/last-mile problem with on-demand transit. Aiven worked with them to provide reliable, highly-scalable services that could handle immense data loads.

The problem

Operating in a fragmented transportation industry, Kyyti uses data to provide a seamless experience for their customers. Handling hundreds of gigabytes of data, they needed a service that could be provisioned in the clouds and regions of their own deployments.

The solution

They chose Aiven PostgreSQL and Kafka to from the core of their database infrastructure because of Aiven's reliability and performance.

The Aiven platform has provided Kyyti a reliable operational database and a Kafka service that enabled Kyyti to reduce their data pipeline APIs from over ten to only a few.
