Real-Time Email Tracking With Go, Redis, and Lua

See the original posting on DZone Python

Real-time data provides a goldmine of information.

At Pepipost, we handle around 20k – 50k email events/second. That’s huge! Processing all these events every single second in real-time. We use the magical combination of Redis and PERL to deal with these complex data structures. And it seemed to work just fine, because of the high text processing efficiency, powerful set of regular expressions, fast development, and easy-to-learn functionality.
