Michael Makunas, Director, Engineering, Social Products at Viacom Ramesh Nuthalapati, Software Architect at Viacom

How do you build a general purpose data collection tool that can be integrated into 100+ sites, handle 15,000 1K writes/second, and have nearly zero downtime? How do you do that and have an architecture virtually unchanged for 3+ years? Start with using Mongo. Michael Makunas and Ramesh Nuthalapati from Viacom Media Networks, home of MTV, Comedy Central, Nickelodeon, and dozens of other brands, detail the architecture of the voting, polling, and data collection system that powers everything from voting for the MTV Video Music Awards, to sliming celebrities at the Nickelodeon Kids Choice Awards, to contests to meet Miley Cyrus.
