Orbeus, a pioneer in image recognition technology recently launched PhotoTime, a smart photo management app, and had to hit the ground running by supporting tens of thousands of new users in the days after launch. PhotoTime uses Orbeus’ proprietary face, scene and objects recognition technology to identify people, places and things in customer photos, regardless of where they are stored. Orbeus leverages DataStax Enterprise to handle on average 3 to 5 million photo and video posts per day with a data load of 300-500GBs of data per day that is stored and analyzed without impact to performance.
