Why should your customers wait? Face it, how fast your system responds to adding items to the cart has a direct impact on your revenue. The faster items can be added, the easier for users to impulse buy. We have seen sites that take 10 and even 30 seconds to add an item to the cart when no load was on the system. Is this your system today?
In all cases we have found once this delay was fixed, revenue to the site improves.
If you want to improve website revenue then you need to improve performance of the above items. If any of the above takes over 4 seconds, from the users perspective, there is a good chance that they will leave the site, not finish the order and never come back to order again.
This is great for Oracle with the new CPU CORE pricing model. How much is your database license today? What is the recurring expense for the database license today? How much will adding more CPU will cost you ? Are you sure new hardware is going to fix your performance problems?
If your system is not tuned for RAC today, most people find out switching to RAC makes the site slower.
Adding another node to the RAC usually increases the response time as the load goes up.
Before spending money on new hardware look at The Tuning Ace Performance Tuning Suite.
Adding Cache is important. However, adding cache does not improve the performance of items that hit the database. When an item is added to the shopping cart, tables inside the database are updated and inserted into. Unless this area of the application is tuned, then the key item that drive site revenue is not fixed.
There is a better solution than buying new hardware. Throwing hardware at the problem and getting stuck with the recurring expense of licensing more CPUs is not necessarily the solution.
