Clustrix (, provider of the first scale-out relational database designed to meet the high-volume online transaction needs of e-commerce and other Web applications, today announced availability of ClustrixDB release 7.0. The company expanded the boundaries of relational database elasticity with a scale-out, shared-nothing ACID-compliant architecture that massively scales both reads and writes, and can be deployed in any cloud or data center. Now it has taken its product to the next level. With, on average, 30 percent performance improvements, an enhanced “Flex” option and new reporting to better understand workload and query times, 7.0 enables companies to easily and economically adjust database capacity to handle steep fluctuations in demand.

According to Mike Azevedo, president & CEO of Clustrix, this release comes just in time to help e-commerce site owners avoid slowdowns and downtime over the busy holiday season. “Today, when online shoppers have more consumer power than ever before, retailers must be able to focus on attracting and retaining customers. They don’t have time to worry about the database under the hood of their e-commerce platform, and the last thing they need to hear is that customers are experiencing delays. With ClustrixDB 7.0, e-commerce merchants have even more scale and a much easier and faster way to prepare for high holiday traffic and checkouts.”
