Database Acceleration for Better eTailing

Abstract background

Optimizing database infrastructure for efficiency and scalability is essential. Especially when an extra click can cost you a sale, and slow page loading reduces conversions.

Pliops helped a hosting company that supports a world-leading eCommerce company dramatically improve its database performance. 

By maximizing MySQL instances, increasing queries per second, and building advanced data protection, Pliops XDP brings a compelling business advantage for eTailing. The solution keeps shoppers and their carts moving through checkout, which also creates a better buying experience.

Overcoming Limitations of Existing eTailing Infrastructure

Most organizations remain cautious about significant infrastructure investments. Doing more with what you have is a mantra across industries and geographies. 

With SSDs, especially NVMe SSDs, many organizations believe they can achieve higher performance and efficient scaling. However, investments do not keep up with everyday realities. 

For example, today’s workloads are hamstrung by overloaded CPUs struggling to keep up with data growth and database software inefficiencies in SSDs. These frustrations are increasingly common. 

We’ve encountered many companies searching for ways to achieve dramatic improvements in infrastructure ROI like this hosting company.

Hardware Acceleration is the Answer for eTailers

Expanding the data center footprint is an option many eTailing organizations have. However, breakthrough solutions like the Pliops Extreme Data Processor (XDP) offer a more effective alternative. 

Pliops XDP is a hardware-based acceleration solution that combines multiple data and storage technologies into one device. Together, these innovative technologies multiply their benefit. 

Dramatic Improvements that Deliver Client Benefits

The hosting company decided to see if Pliops could help squeeze more out of its existing infrastructure without changing its MySQL environment.

When delivering on strict SLAs, our client had to grow its footprint to keep up with its customers’ ongoing business growth. However, this linear scaling model had clear limitations. For example, limited physical space, high cost, and business profitability. With Pliops XDP, the company found an exponentially more effective approach.

If increasing business-critical workload performance, reliability, capacity, and efficiency without expanding your data center footprint can benefit your business, Pliops can help.
