MarkLogic Corporation, whose flagship product is a purpose-built database for unstructured information, has announced that it was selected as the database of choice after a proof of concept that included a migration of the existing catalog content in less than four days.
DEAstore.com is an Italian e-bookstore with over 16 million searchable records in multiple languages. The company prides itself on the completeness of its catalog and is slated to have over 20 million records by the end of the year, as it continues to expand products in other languages. The speed of product searches, accurate indexing, and quality of service are key to DEAstore.com's business success. MarkLogic Server provided the speed, agility, and scalability that DEAstore.com needed in order to meet consumer expectations and continue product expansion.
MarkLogic's work with DEAstore.com has had the effect of reducing lag time on indexing, decreasing the number of servers from 13 to three, and lowering the number of returns with zero search results.
"DEAstore.com was challenged with having a multitude of unstructured information that needed to be searchable and made available at a moment's notice," said John Pomeroy, vice president of MarkLogic Europe. "The company needed a scalable solution that could provide the most up-to-date information quickly in order to meet customer needs. As a database for unstructured information, MarkLogic was able to accomplish these challenges better than traditional relational databases in a very short timeframe."
