SAN FRANCISCO, CA - Nov 4, 2014 - Clustrix, provider of the first scale-out database designed to meet the needs of fast growing e-commerce websites, released the webinar titled, “Why Traditional Databases Fail so Miserably to Scale with E-Commerce Site Growth” to educate e-commerce merchants on the need to move beyond MySQL to a scalable database ahead of Cyber Monday.
According to forecasts, the worldwide business-to-consumer e-commerce sales will reach $1.5 trillion in 2014, presenting major revenue opportunities for retailers.
“E-commerce is a rapidly growing market and with sites growing between 500 and 1000 percent on an annual basis, today’s e-commerce databases are under a tremendous amount of pressure,” said Tony Barbagallo, CMO of Clustrix. “Today, e-commerce merchants cannot risk website slowdowns or lost revenue during peak sale times such as Cyber Monday. We built ClustrixDB to address these issues. ClustrixDB meets the needs of the modern e-commerce site, providing more uptime, more capacity and therefore more business opportunities for e-commerce merchants, without the worry of the backend infrastructure.”
Traditionally, enterprises have dealt with database performance issues by scaling-up, introducing a bigger server with more power. For many e-commerce merchants, this solution is not only extremely expensive, but also highly volatile. ClustrixDB’s scale-out architecture and automated fault tolerance is optimized for fast growing e-commerce sites. Plug-and-play compatible with MySQL, ClustrixDB is 100 percent fault tolerant, allowing sites to keep pace with an ever-increasing and variable volume of traffic.
