Clustrix (www.clustrix.com), provider of the first scale-out database designed for the elastic scaling requirements of high-transaction, high-value workloads of today’s Web applications, announced the availability of version 8.0 of its software. Designed to help customers meet the challenge of explosive growth in transactional workloads, the new version combines in-memory processing, containerization and encryption to improve performance, ease-of-use and security.
Rising mobile usage strains database infrastructure
More and more consumers are accessing websites and transacting while on-the-go, with mobile usage now overtaking the desktop 51 to 42 percent1. Almost half of all consumers now expect a web page to load in two seconds or less, and 27 percent of cart abandonment occurs due to time constraints2. These high expectations, coupled with high-transaction high-value workloads, are placing unprecedented demands on database infrastructures. In a recent survey, Analyst firm ESG noted database growth in excess of 40 percent per year, with nearly half of respondents citing increases in transactional workloads as a database challenge leading to performance concerns.3
