iCube, Clustrix Partner to Handle Asia’s Most Demanding Website Workloads

South Asian Companies Get Unprecedented Power for Magento Sites

San Francisco, CA - May 2, 2016 - Clustrix, provider of the first scale-out database designed for the elastic scaling requirements of high-transaction, high-value workloads of today’s web applications, announced a partnership with iCube (www.icubeonline.com), an Indonesia-based e-commerce agency and Magento Silver Solution Partner. This announcement gives South Asian customers a single local source for Magento development, services and Clustrix technology, including Clustrix’s recently announced ClustrixDB for Magento bundle.

With a growing client base that includes some of the largest online merchants using Magento in South Asia, iCube has found that with Clustrix, they can address the scalability limits their clients are facing by adding ClustrixDB for Magento to their clients’ Magento sites. “We’re constantly evaluating the latest and greatest technologies for our customers, and ClustrixDB is without a doubt one of the ones we’re most excited to add to our portfolio,” said Muliadi Jeo, CEO, iCube. “We were quite surprised during our testing with the performance improvements that ClustrixDB was able to achieve, especially as load increased.”

Five times the performance of MySQL and zero-downtime catalog updates on Magento

ClustrixDB for Magento offers a fully fault-tolerant drop-in replacement for the MySQL back-end that powers virtually all Magento sites. It includes:

  • The ClustrixDB database, which can scale out to accommodate more than five times the traffic and orders of a typical Magento site
  • The Shadow (re)Indexer, a drop-in replacement for key Magento indexers that allows you to perform catalog updates without taking the system offline

With this partnership, iCube can supply merchants throughout South Asia with the products and local support services needed to power and manage a high-transaction, high-value Magento site, and reduce checkout interruptions due to catalog updates from minutes and hours to just seconds.

“This is an exciting expansion of our partner community with our first Asia-based Magento partnership,” said Lindsey Anderson, Vice President of Sales, Clustrix. “ClustrixDB is already used by several top Asian e-commerce companies, and this partnership will facilitate continued expansion in the APAC region.”
