If Your Database Is Already in Place, Pain Might Be in Your Future

Two years ago, you launched an e-commerce platform. Since then, your business has grown steadily, and your digital storefront has operated smoothly during that time. While that’s great news, are you prepared for what’s to come if your e-commerce business continues growing?

It is more than likely that you already have a MySQL database as part of your e-commerce platform. However, as a successful business you will soon pass a certain threshold of traffic, leaving your organization with a database that can’t support your e-commerce site as it reaches maximum capacity. And once that happens—which it will, assuming your business keeps growing—your systems will crash and your site will become inoperable.

In addition to the frustration your customers will experience, your business is likely to suffer financially. In fact, when it comes to unexpected downtime, the average small to medium-sized business stands to lose an average of $12,500 per hour. Nowadays, customers expect instantaneous results, and if your website can’t provide that, then they will surely go looking for someone else who can.

Now for the good news. If you’re concerned about your database’s MySQL performance, Clustrix has a solution to ensure that your business is ready to absorb any influx of traffic.

Introducing ClustrixDB, the SQL-based, ACID-compliant, scale-out cloud database with NewSQL architecture. Our technology scales to allow for an ever-increasing amount of transactions—so as customers flock to your e-commerce platform, you will have the necessary infrastructure to accommodate them.

With ClustrixDB, your e-commerce platform is able to process a high volume of transactions while concurrently running real-time analytics. And by being ACID-compliant, ClustrixDB also ensures the atomicity, consistency, isolation and durability (ACID) of all your database transactions. This means there’s no nasty surprises in your future—such as transactions lost—if a cloud provider shuts-down one of your servers, for example. The same can not be said for a NoSQL database.
