Presentation: Project Voldemort at Gilt Groupe: When Failure Isn't an Option

InfoQ posted Geir Magnusson’s presentation on Project Voldermort recorded at ☞ QCon London.

Geir Magnusson explains how Gilt Groupe is using Project Voldemort to scale out their e-commerce transactional system. The initial SQL solution had to be replaced because it could not handle the transactional spikes the site is experiencing daily due to its particular way of selling their inventory: each day at noon. Magnusson explains why they chose Voldemort and talks about the architecture.

I have recently heard about others having to deal with similar scenarios so I’m really wondering what solutions are they employing.

As a side note, ☞ QCon San Francisco 2010, coming in November 1-5, will have a full day NoSQL track hosted by yours truly. Expect more details about the presentations in this track very soon.
