Today's technology environment provides us with a variety of tools like MongoDB, Riak, Redis, Memcached, etc. that can help us solve fabulously interesting and difficult problems. However, many of the new tools at our disposal are poorly understood, and frequently misapplied.

This talk is will provide examples of some hard data problems, from "Flash Sale" eCommerce and AdTech, and how these tools were applied to solve them.
