Ivinco Develops Search API for Effyis' SocialGist Project
About the Customer / Background
SocialGist, previously known as BoardReader, handles a large amount of data collected from various social media platforms. The company found itself needing to monetize this data and decided to develop a paid Search API. The project's tech stack initially included PHP and MySQL.
Effyis faced several challenges in developing the new Search API, which included:
Creating a comprehensive and high-performance solution
Managing user access and permissions
Ensuring data security
Protecting against system abuse
Adhering to a tight schedule
The objective was to develop a solution from scratch that would effectively monetize their data while addressing these challenges.
Ivinco, with its expertise in software development, high-performance, and high-availability web apps, provided a solution that was easy to integrate with the existing infrastructure.
The solution involved the development of several products supporting different data types, including forums, images, links, blogs, and news. Over the years, Ivinco worked on the following:
Backend for the Search API itself
Effective indexing, search, and filtering of large amounts of data (100 TB of text)
User and Access management systems (Backend + Frontend)
Reliability and DDoS resistance
Ivinco successfully built a high-performance and reliable solution from scratch that has become one of the core parts of Effyis's business.
