Testing indicates 90% horizontal scalability when delivering customer experiences through a traditional storefront and up to 98% when using Elastic Path Cortex. Clustering horizontally is also ideal for reliability and failover reasons. The Elastic Path Commerce Engine may also be scaled vertically using multiple virtual machines in one instance, which provides excellent performance, but without the failover benefits.
Search Server Clustering
The Elastic Path Commerce Engine provides horizontal search server clustering. This provides massive scalability and failover benefits. To ensure the consistency of search performance, you can also assign an independent server solely for updating indexes.
The Elastic Path Commerce Engine is certified on Oracle® and Oracle® RAC for large-scale enterprise deployments. The latter permits database clustering and the addition of nodes at any time, to enable effective horizontal database scalability. Microsoft® SQL Server clustering and MySQL™ clustering are also possible.
Customer experience: The Elastic Path Commerce Engine fully supports proxy cache servers, which can accelerate throughput over 50% by serving static content and media. Elastic Path also has extensive experience with edge caching using content delivery networks such as Akamai®.
