Brick-and-mortar retailers are merging their physical and virtual channels to deliver a better, holistic shopping experience. In some cases, this necessitates paying special attention to their online presence and making sure their website performance meets customer expectations. Retailers should run their websites on a scalable platform that allows them to take on more customers without compromising service quality or uptime.
Npo Sistemi, an IT services provider, supported an online, multi-brand, fashion and design store whose website typically ran at 75 or 80 percent utilization and, on busy days, at full capacity. Npo Sistemi found that three HP DL* 980 servers, each with 128 GB of RAM, significantly increased website capacity and improved customer service. After a move to the Intel® Xeon® processor E7 product family, the website for an online multi-brand fashion and design store went from 75 to 80 percent CPU utilization during the 1:00 to 5:00 p.m. peak period to well below 20 percent utilization. Now there is ample performance headroom to handle increased demand.
