The Rise of Same-Day Delivery and What It Means for Your Database

What Same-Day Delivery Means for Your Database

It used to be that if you needed a hammer to complete a project around the house, you’d drive down the street and get that hammer at the local hardware store.

Believe it or not, in today’s e-commerce-driven world, that notion has been modernized: Companies like Google, Amazon, eBay and Target are testing same-day delivery. In other words, if you need a hammer, you can log on to one of those retailers’ websites, order the tool and expect it at your door that day.

Undoubtedly, that’s great news for the consumer—especially as the process improves. But if same-day delivery is the future of e-commerce, what does that mean for your database? After all, just that one extra piece of logistics could have an incredible impact on databases that are already hitting their limits.

As more e-commerce companies look to add services such as same-day delivery to their portfolios, they must understand the impact to their databases and how capabilities from a cloud database, like NewSQL, can help them quickly scale either up or down.

NewSQL is an innovative relational database that leverages SQL language while at the same time embracing the scalability associated with NoSQL databases. NewSQL ensures atomicity, consistency, isolation and durability (ACID) in all transactions, meaning that businesses don’t have to worry about their customers growing frustrated when an e-commerce platform functions improperly.

Taking advantage of NewSQL functionality, ClustrixDB is becoming increasingly popular among e-commerce companies that seek scalable cloud databases that can be easily leveraged to produce comprehensive reports rife with actionable data. ClustrixDB ensures that your database will function optimally even during periods of the highest volume.
