SpinMedia Chooses ScaleArc iDB to Boost Performance of WordPress
ScaleArc, the leader in database infrastructure software that optimizes and scales database environments for increased application performance and availability, today announced that SpinMedia, the world’s largest collective of pop culture and music digital brands, has chosen ScaleArc iDB
to optimize the performance and up-time of its WordPress / MySQL infrastructure. "Because of our hyper growth, our database infrastructure wasn’t able to keep up. The performance of our WordPress sites suffered, and we sometimes experienced outages," said Chet Rungruang, Sr. Director of IT for SpinMedia. "We tried the HyperDB plugin for WordPress, but it required a lot of configuration work with marginal results. ScaleArc iDB gave us an easy shortcut to split reads and writes, which increased site performance immediately, and allows us to scale for growth without rewriting a line of code."
