After we started receiving insane AWS invoices for our cold events databases, we decided to optimize the data and store it like compact encrypted and compressed chunks. I’ll tell you about an engineering way of solving the task without using any ready solution like branded database or data storage.

In this talk I will share a full history of custom data storage creation. I will speak about 2 sides of processes. About a simple concept of integrating stateless component beside a database driver and about the migration complexity with parallel processes where each mistake has a monthly expected cost. Research, development, and troubleshooting in the custom data storage which allows us to cut our costs down to 2% from based PosgtreSQL instance.

The talk was accepted to the conference program
