An international luxury brand has recently migrated its Oracle Commerce website to Pivotree and saw significant improvement in performance while reducing hardware footprint.

Ecommerce Challenge

Challenge

The retailer built its first Oracle Commerce website a few years ago. Recent web traffic growth, as well as increasing customer expectations made it obvious to the retailer that it could no longer rely on existing systems to provide required website stability. It needed a reliable partner that would ensure the flawless performance of its systems at all times, while allowing the company’s internal team to focus on business development instead of troubleshooting.

  • Dedicated redundant 10GB networks
  • Hosting environment configured and tuned by Oracle Commerce experts
