Magento is one of the best eCommerce CMS systems available today. Based on numerous IT technologies, it has flexible modular architecture and an agile ecosystem that can be continually adapted, customized, and extended for an e-commerce website, benefiting from a large variety of embedded features like data catalog management, marketing tools, analytics, SEO engine optimization, reporting, etc. Choosing the right platform is the only first step.
Magento, PHP based eCommerce platform, is packaged as an advanced highly reliable and auto-scalable cluster on top of certified Cloudjiffy dockerized stack templates with the following topology:
- Varnish load balancer is supplemented with NGINX server as HTTPS proxy
- Scalable NGINX PHP application servers with preconfigured automatic horizontal scaling to handle load spikes
- MySQL DB Cluster with asynchronous master-slave replication to ensure high availability, fault tolerance and data security
- Redis Sessions node to retain user session parameters
- Redis Cache node for content cache storing
- Elastic Data Storage node for media files
Herewith, each container within a cluster receives the default vertical scaling limit up to 8 cloudlets (equal to 1 GB of RAM and 3.2 GHz of CPU) and a set of load alerts (to notify you when the resource consumption is close to the limit).
Also, it’s worth noting that when you scale either Load Balancer or Application Server layer, the appropriate configurations are automatically adjusted to include the data on all application server nodes the load should be distributed across. In addition, the application servers layer is automatically scaled by the system based on the amount of incoming traffic in order to handle the changeable load.
Click the Deploy button below, specify your email address within the widget, choose one of the Cloudjiffy Public Cloud providers and press Install.
Note: If you are already registered at Cloudjiffy, you can deploy this cluster by importing the package manifest raw link within the dashboard.
In the opened confirmation window at Cloudjiffy dashboard, type the Environment name, optionally, customize its Display Name. Then, select the preferable region (if several are available) and click on Install.
Once the deployment is finished, you’ll see the appropriate success pop-up with access credentials to your administration Magento panel, whilst the same information will be duplicated to your email box.
So now you can just click on the Open in browser button within the shown frame and start filling your highly available and reliable Magento installation with the required content, being ready to handle as much users as your service requires.
Fine tuning and customization: multi-cloud HA and DR, geo distributed load balancing, performance optimization, WAF, CDN and other required addons can be installed afterward on demand.
