NEW DELHI, INDIA: Aerospike announced that Snapdeal has deployed the Aerospike in-memory NoSQL database to provide consumers with the up-to-the-moment updates about product availability, pricing, and seller ratings to help make buying decisions informed and convenient.
Amitabh Misra, Snapdeal VP of Engineering, said: “We selected the Aerospike in-memory NoSQL database because it delivered the highest performance and enabled the lowest cost of deployment. It’s a fantastic product. With Aerospike, we can push through huge price changes while maintaining the same response time experience on the buyer’s side-even with millions of buyers. That has been the biggest advantage.”
“Snapdeal has emerged as the largest online marketplace in India by providing a superior consumer experience with real-time responses about product availability, pricing and seller rankings,” said Srini V. Srinivasan, Aerospike founder and VP of engineering and operations.
“We are thrilled by the success of Snapdeal in using our in-memory NoSQL database to continue its rapid expansion of shoppers, sellers and merchandise while ensuring that it maintains the high responsiveness that consumers have come to expect.”
Aerospike database has been implemented in combination with a MySQL database running on the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2). The in-memory Aerospike database maintains sub-millisecond latency while managing 100 million-plus objects stored in 32 GB of DRAM to support real-time dynamic pricing. It predicts low latency with 95 percent to 99 percent of transactions completing within 10 milliseconds-essential for enabling a responsive customer experience.
