Geir Magnusson explains how Gilt Groupe is using Project Voldemort to scale out their e-commerce transactional system. The initial SQL solution had to be replaced because it could not handle the transactional spikes the site is experiencing daily due to its particular way of selling their inventory: each day at noon. Magnusson explains why they chose Voldemort and talks about the architecture.
