More ScaleArc Magic – Speeding up Apps with Wrapped Transactions
A lot of applications are coded in a way that inhibits performance when you pair them with modern, scaled out databases. What’s the problem? It’s called wrapped transactions. And ScaleArc just solved this problem for apps on SQL Server.
The term “wrapped transactions” means every database query looks like a write. What apps use wrapped transaction? eCommerce apps like Hybris, apps written in frameworks such as Hibernate or Spring, and even new cloud-native development platforms like Pivotal Cloud Foundry. In other words, lots of business-critical apps use wrapped transactions.
The root of the problem is that if every query is a write, all the traffic from that application has to go to the primary server in a database cluster. So when you invest in that modern database, with readable secondary servers, you get nothing back from your investment because no traffic will go to any of the servers except the primary. You wasted a bunch of money, and your app’s going to run slowly.
