Success Story: FlightCaster
December 16, 2009 by Oren Teich
Last month’s featured app was FlightCaster. FlightCaster provides flight delay prediction, letting you know 6 hours in advance if your flight is delayed. Today we’ve posted their success story, along with a great video with their CEO, Jason Freedman.
Jason goes into some great details on how they use Heroku to handle their complex application, including using a Hadoop cluster to process millions of updates. In his words, “Heroku has enabled us to deliver a world class service without having the huge management and operational overhead we would have otherwise needed.”
