Nomorerack Harnesses Power of ClustrixDB to Easily Handle Holiday Shopping Spikes for Second Year in a Row
SAN FRANCISCO, CA – Jan 13, 2015 – Clustrix, provider of the first scale-out database designed to meet the needs of fast growing e-commerce sites, announced that Nomorerack, an Internet Retailer Top 100 merchant, achieved a significant revenue increase during the holiday shopping season with ClustrixDB. Nomorerack chose Clustrix for its high availability, scalability and performance of its database, as well as its MySQL compatibility and the company’s reliable support services.
“In 2013, we experienced a 600 percent increase in revenue on Cyber Monday compared to a typical day,” said Keith Bussey, nomorerack VP of Technology. “We would not have been able to achieve this without Clustrix, as it helps us scale to meet the demand of a three-fold increase in site traffic without any downtime. This year we doubled down on our investment and it paid off. By increasing our ClustrixDB deployment, we were able to achieve a 60 percent increase in net revenue over the same period last year.”
With a potential lost revenue of $500,000 per hour, e-commerce businesses simply cannot afford downtime. Nowhere is this more evident than on peak shopping days like Cyber Monday. ClustrixDB reduces the risk of costly slowdowns and outages, providing more uptime, more capacity and ultimately more sales opportunities for e-commerce merchants.
Estimating a three-fold increase in website traffic this holiday season, nomorerack expanded their ClustrixDB deployment from eight to 18 servers. As a result, the company easily handled record holiday shopping traffic and achieved 60 percent increase in net revenue.
“Nomorerack is one of the fastest growing e-commerce companies in the US,” said Mike Azevedo, Clustrix CEO. “When we began working together in 2013, they were struggling with downtime issues. With the help of ClustrixDB, today nomorerack easily keeps pace with customer demand, allowing them to grow their business without having to think about their website.”
