Rubicon Project Improves Performance and Streamlines Automated Advertising Solution

“Before we installed Pepperdata, we didn’t have a way to access JVM metrics or drill down to the level of granularity that was needed to effectively find and resolve issues the way we do now. We received a small number of cluster metrics via open-source Grafana and Graphite, but in most cases, the data wasn’t enough to pinpoint issues, and the solutions we were using to manage the cluster were rudimentary.”

–Jesse Escobedo, Senior Systems Engineer, Rubicon Project


Rubicon Project needed a robust monitoring and metrics solution that could provide them with granular insight on what was happening in their cluster. They knew that they could manage their clusters more efficiently and were considering a number of open-source and enterprise solutions.


After a successful POC, the Rubicon Project chose the Platform Spotlight solution for functionality, monitoring, troubleshooting, and the metrics gathering capabilities. Pepperdata stood out as the turnkey solution.


Pepperdata Platform Spotlight gave Rubicon Project the granular visibility they needed to quickly pinpoint, troubleshoot, and resolve problems in their cluster. As Rubicon Project builds out their new streaming platform, an extremely important success factor is using the Pepperdata solution to streamline workflow efficiency, make the cluster more efficient, and stay ahead of issues that could impact the longterm health of the cluster.
