This sophisticated backend solution works together to help Magento stores serve more customers, accommodate more catalog updates and most importantly, process more orders…at the same time.

ClustrixDB for Magento is a replacement backend that uniquely meets the growth, performance, and availability requirements of today’s online retailers.

Included in the Bundle

ClustrixDB for Magento includes four Clustrix components
that make it the only Magento solution to allow full-site functionality and performance even while running the Magento Indexers:

ClustrixDB, the Clustrix Shadow (re)Indexer, and the Clustrix Checkout and Clustrix Flash Sales Modules.


ClustrixDB is a drop-in replacement for the MySQL database at the core of virtually all Magento e-commerce stores. ClustrixDB is a true, scale-out relational database that is designed to expand the performance of high-transaction Magento sites. As a true scale-out database, ClustrixDB easily accommodates more traffic and processes more orders than MySQL. It also offers the unique Flex features that allow you to Flex Up and add more servers/nodes during peak selling seasons and Flex Down again when traffic returns to normal rates. ClustrixDB can scale-out to accommodate up to more than five times the traffic of a typical Magento site.


Clustrix Shadow (re)Indexer


The Clustrix Shadow (re)Indexer is a drop-in replacement for key Magento indexers that re-architects the indexing process to remove update delays, eliminate check-out downtime and significantly reduce the CPU load that is required with the standard Magento indexers.


Clustrix Checkout

Clustrix Checkout significantly improves Magento’s performance during the checkout process, allowing for faster and higher volumes of simultaneous checkouts, and eliminating situations where users get stuck and frustrated on slow-loading or crashing checkout pages. Clustrix Checkout has successfully processed up to 17 checkout transactions per second sustained over a two day period! Ensuring customers easily and quickly complete their transactions helps drive up satisfaction, sales, and ultimately loyalty.  


Clustrix Flash Sales


Even normal high checkout situations can put a strain on the database due to the high volume of write data, but flash sales make it even tougher than usual to process those checkouts.  Clustrix Flash Sales is an add-on module designed specifically to allow for a high volume of checkouts on a small number of products or even a single flash-sale product. Gone are the days when online retailers manage to pull in a flood of customers trying to buy their products through flash sales, but then fail to sell them because the checkout process cannot support the volume of transactions in a tight window of time.

Both Clustrix Checkout and Clustrix Flash Sales significantly increases performance on Magento Enterprise Edition 1.14 and Community Edition 1.9.
