Coping with high Demands of Peak Sales
We currently develop and support core applications for one of the biggest fashion apparel retailers in the world. The ever-growing nature of online sales, combined with peak sales like end season sales, black friday, etc. led the company to change its actual constraining IT architecture that allows coping with the demand. Using hexagonal architecture software design patterns, we deployed a highly fault tolerant and scalable microservices solution that is able to handle and scale these loads, with room to grow. Most of the software delivered performs mission critical functions for the online boutique like the checkout process or shopping basket.
