The Ultimate Magento Backend Invades London

Clustrix Revs its Next-Gen Magento Engine at MagentoLive UK

San Francisco, CA - Jun 16, 2016 -

The UK has given the world some awesome things: Newtonian Physics, Shakespeare, parliamentary democracy, The Beatles. Now San Francisco-based Clustrix, a Magento Silver Performance Partner, wants to give something back at MagentoLive UK 2016, taking place June 20-21. Clustrix, Gold sponsor of the show and provider of the first scale-out SQL database, will demo ClustrixDB for Magento–the next-generation backend that supercharges the performance capabilities of Magento stores.

“Today’s e-commerce companies all must face two realities: they need to handle radical shifts in website traffic and transactions, and they need to sell to a global audience that never sleeps, and never stops shopping,” said Mike Azevedo, CEO, Clustrix.  “We’ve built a backend for high-transaction Magento stores that allows you to process more orders per hour and eliminate checkout-lockout due to catalog updates and indexing.”

ClustrixDB for Magento includes the only Magento-approved drop-in replacement for MySQL, which accommodates more than five times the traffic and orders of a typical Magento site, and the Shadow (re)Indexer, which allows companies to update e-commerce catalogs without slowing down the site and making check-out unavailable.

Proving what was thought impossible: zero errors, 100 percent uptime while re-indexing
Conventional wisdom and experience say that you can’t re-index under heavy workloads without significant (revenue-eating) downtime. However, Clustrix will demonstrate at the show that, with its new Magento backend, you can run a Magento store at remarkable levels of performance — 14.6 orders per second and 816 pageviews per second while doing catalog updates approximately every 12 minutes (with new catalog updates appearing on the site in seconds).

“You’d expect an online store to buckle under these conditions, however at Magento Imagine we showed that this can be done while achieving an average response time of 267 milliseconds, with 0% error rate and 100% checkout uptime,” said Azevedo. “We’re going to repeat the demonstration at MagentoLive UK, and anyone who doesn’t think we can duplicate the results is invited to come and see for themselves–we predict they’ll walk away believers.”
