I am looking to help solve a client’s problem related to their shopping cart system. They have a home grown e-commerce wholesale purchasing site. They have independent reps that come in and purchase clothing to resale at parties or events. This wouldn’t be a problem but they run their sales based on flash sales.
The company makes an announcement of new products going on sale Monday, but doesn’t announce what the products are. The products launch at 11:00am but a preview is opened at 9:00am. When 11:00am hits the site usage completely spikes getting somewhere around 60K requests per second.
Can aerospike quickly handle a large amount of reads and writes to the same object? Namely, checking inventory stock level and decrementing the stock level when an item is placed in cart? We cannot allow a Rep to think they have an item in their cart and then find out it is out of stock when they checkout.
Any insight to this use case for Aerospike would be great.
