iMall Deploys Object Design’s ObjectStore

iMall said it has deployed the Object Design Inc. ObjectStore data management system in its next-generation online shopping solution.


iMall operates a Web mall and licenses its e-commerce solutions.


ObjectStore is providing iMall with a scalable, high-performance solution for
storing and managing data for thousands of stores and millions of products,
shoppers and orders. Financial terms of the arrangement were not disclosed.


Phillip Windley, chief technology officer at iMall, said: “We knew we had to
enhance our system with an industrial-strength database like ObjectStore to
give us the scalability, performance and fault tolerance a site like ours requires. Thanks to ObjectStore and our next-generation system, iMall can now handle hundreds of thousands of retailers and tens of millions of inventory items.”


iMall said it selected the ObjectStore database for its ability to directly
store object and component data without requiring any data mapping or
translation, and for its unique Cache-Forward distributed data-caching
architecture that delivers high performance and scalability in multiuser
environments.
