Clustrix, provider of the first scale-out relational database designed to meet the needs of large, fast-growing e-commerce sites and other big Web- and cloud-based applications, announced that its Magento solutions architect Kevin Bortnick, a certified Magento developer, will be speaking at Meet Magento NY, a leading conference of Magento e-commerce platform users.

Kevin Bortnick, Magento Solutions Architect, Clustrix

Bortnick’s session titled “Scaling Magento for Peak Seasonal Demand” will detail how to cost-effectively maintain a high-performing website throughout peak-traffic time periods, such as the end-of-year holiday shopping season.

In this educational session, Bortnick will talk about scaling strategies used to overcome bottlenecks associated with the MySQL database used by most Magento customers. He will highlight the shortcomings of each and share his real-world experiences. Bortnick will educate attendees about how a scale-out database opens new possibilities for scaling to meet these demands without paying for unused capacity or dealing with the complexity that comes with administering read slaves, sharding, new high-performance hardware and other modifications used to expand capacity of an RDMS.
