New Bundle from Microsoft Azure, Webscale and Clustrix Gives E-Commerce Merchants Assurance of Best Customer Experience

Boulder, Colo – Online retailers know nothing impacts business worse than a poorly performing website. To solve this issue, Microsoft, Webscale, and Clustrix configured a solution that ensures merchants using the Magento eCommerce platform, which powers more than 240,000 sites and was recognized as the leading e-commerce platform on the 2014 Internet Retailer Top 1000 and Hot 100 lists, can have the absolute highest performing websites available, at an affordable price.

“Customer demand, traffic spikes, server requests and server performance all impact the online customer experience. One variable can mean online retailers are faced with technical glitches that turn customers away from purchases,” said Jay Smith, CEO of Webscale. “Yet today, few e-commerce merchants know the best way to effectively manage their environments without breaking the bank on overwrought technology that’s unnecessary for their business. Our newest solution solves this problem.”

The new bundle allows e-commerce merchants to completely solve infrastructure challenges while keeping costs low. Online retailers can have complete uptime of web applications with an immediate performance boost of 25-30 percent, while keeping that level of performance steady. The CloudMaestro™ solution from Webscale maintains visibility of the production environment, resolves requests of the web application, monitors traffic volumes, and then automatically adjusts the number of servers to maintain an optimal customer experience — scaling performance immediately with traffic demands. Clustrix provides high performance scale-out database, ClustrixDB, that works in tandem with Webscale technology, the eBay Enterprise Magento applications, and the Azure cloud.

“Azure is the leading hybrid cloud option in the market for many organizations. The portability and management of rapidly changing workloads are significant challenges within a hybrid cloud environment. CloudMaestro managing a containerized environment quite simply solves this challenge. CloudMaestro can seamlessly move the container from on-premise to the cloud or vice versa without any interaction from the enterprise. By decoupling the user interaction from the actual workload we can address traffic redirection and load balancing across the hybrid cloud,” said Scott Guthrie, Vice President responsible for the Windows Azure Application Platform Team at Microsoft. “Cloud is about simplifying technology so it’s accessible and affordable for even the smallest of businesses, and this new agreement with Webscale and Clustrix makes that possible. We help businesses meet their pace of demand in an affordable, simple and scalable way.”
