SAN FRANCISCO, CA: Clustrix, a provider of cloud-based relational digital database system is releasing version 7.0 of its distributed database ‘ClusterDB’ specifically engineered for online retailers.

Traditional SQL databases usually extend the database to larger detail but do not have the ability to scale "out" the relational database with inclusion of hardware resources. The ClustrixDB offers expandable capacity in the data center or the cloudand stores the records containing numerous transactional data such as shopping cart, orders, customer informationand processed social data. Its scale out architecture scale reads, writes, updates and analytics in the database, as online businesses add nodes such asnew customers, new applicationsand transactions. In addition it capacitates users with real-time reporting of business performance metricslike customer social media engagement, online customer transactions, and reference data by intersecting data withSQL and Atomicity, Consistency, Isolation, Durability (ACID) support. ClustrixDB supports more than one trillion transactions per month for customers including AOL, Flipkart, MakeMyTrip, nomorerack and Symantec.

The upcoming version of ClustrixDB facilitates online businesses with ‘flex’ option in order to enable companies to alter their database dimensions according to fluctuating demand, improving performance. Most retailers pay all year long for peak seasons but with ClusterDB 7.0, they can add capacity to their database system during seasonal, promotional and other spikes, paying for only needed capacity and flex back down after the peak demand is over.

“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. ClustrixDB brings the consistency of SQL, yet the ability to scale to the exponentially increasing data demands that companies are experiencing today," says Mike Azevedo, CEO, Clustrix. ClustrixDB 7.0 SQL database can be deployed in any cloud, including: Rackspace, Microsoft Azure, ZeroLag and AWS.
