Composable solutions offer better scalability
When Lego’s e-Commerce site buckled under the weight of traffic during a set launch in 2017, it managed seven orders per second. With a composable solution in place, it launched one hundred new products and saw huge spikes in traffic, but processed two thousand orders per minute, without any issues.
Composable architecture allows for better scalability, meaning businesses can ease or negate spikes in traffic without increasing servers.
Brands can scale individual services up or down independently of others, allowing developers to optimise solutions for peak traffic periods, but act reactively to un-foreseen spikes and dips.
Businesses can explore best-of-breed cross-channel order management services that fit in with their unique business and with a multi-cloud approach, teams can share workloads across data centres and private clouds seamlessly.
With an infrastructure that is easier to scale, brands are more flexible to grow as demand grows, or vice versa.
