Golden Sales is a web service offering clothes and accessories of the world’s best known brands and designers at special prices. Golden Sales will offer such brands as Calvin Klein, Armani, Versace, Diesel, Gucci, Guess, Adidas and many more.
Divante of OEX Group, specializing in innovative eCommerce solutions took over technical service and maintenance of Golden Sales – one of the biggest purchasing clubs in Europe.
Cooperation covers continuity of the client’s platform, software development and project management. Contract implementation started from transferring dedicated application from .NET technology into Magento. The process involved specialists from 2 other companies: ORBA and BI Architects. The key element of site migration was the timeline; the basic version was completed within 4 weeks.
A new engine was implemented without changing the user interface. Additionally, websites in Bulgaria and Romania were launched as well.
Issues related to efficiency were a major challenge, as Golden Sales must handle large viewing spikes.
For this purpose, we used an original system architecture which is based on the use of database replication, the Redis cache system, Varnish proxy system, load balancing and a distributed files system.
Thanks to this architecture, horizontal application scalability with increasing traffic is possible. In addition, a solution of high 2N model performance was achieved, which means there will be no single point of failure on any of the system layers.
