ClustrixDB keeps heavily-trafficked Social Sites Connected and Available in Real-Time

Social Media turns the web into a place where everyone can interact, meet, learn, grow, and build relationships. As important as the look/feel and cool features of your social site, it’s even more important that it has the underlying horsepower to handle all the people searching, connecting, rating, viewing, chatting, messaging, uploading, and of course, posting. People want to share their social habits now, immediately, in real time, and won’t wait if your site slows down. You can always add more CDN servers to host static data, but when people want to do things, to participate on your site, your database had better be able to handle the load.


     Scale/Flex

As your site grows, you’ll need to add more capacity to your database as well. Depending on your user-base, you can see big spikes on weekends and the holidays. ClustrixDB adds additional read and write scale with each additional server. Provision only the servers you need, when you need them, and s$ave during the times you don’t!


    High Speed

ClustrixDB is designed to handle hundreds of thousands of transactions of database transactions a second. This is exactly what it takes to handle hundreds of thousands of users all wanting to update their profile, send messages to each other, and see their recommendations. Real-time performance is critical; your users already like to communicate, so don’t risk them making the wrong kind of noise on social media if your site slows down.


     Very High Connection Count

ClustrixDB excels at multiple simultaneous transactions, exactly what a social site needs when many people are all trying to interact on your site. The last thing you need is for gamers to be ‘unable to connect to server’; your site lives or dies by keeping people connected


    Drop-In MySQL Compatibility 

Chances are your social applications run on MySQL. Avoid the need to replatform to an expensively-licensed huge database, and get the performance you need using your same MySQL application (workload), on a much faster database than MySQL
