We are a dedicated team working on nopCommerce development services. We’re passionate about offering quality nopCommerce development services, including plugin & extension development, theme development, and performance optimization.
We have experience of working on numbers of small & mid-sized nopCommerce projects, some of them are highly customized and hosting huge product catalogs.
Just like you, we also had some bad experiences with nopCommerce site speed and hence we started looking for alternative technologies & looked at other e-commerce software and largest e-commerce sites on the internet. The result is Apache Solr.
Apache Solr is an open source Ultra-fast Lucene-based Search Server. It is highly reliable, scalable and fault tolerant, providing distributed indexing, replication and load-balanced querying, automated failover and recovery and more.
On further investigating, we found that Apache Solr is the integral part of the most of the leading proprietary e-commerce solutions which are available at very high price tags.
Apache Solr powers the search and navigation features of many of the world’s largest internet sites such as Netflix, AOL, CNET, Zappos and many more.
However, we’re in love with nopCommerce (to be very frank!) because of its modular, easy to understand architecture. Moreover, nopCommerce is one of the best e-commerce application platform available that has all the features that you can think of for a modern e-commerce site and it’s available for free. Did I mention, that core team behind nopCommerce is very responsive and keeps adding new features faster than any other open source e-commerce project has witnessed?
So, we just started working on integrating Apache Solr with nopCommerce. And at the end of the integration, we have seen a very impressive result. With a site having almost 100,000 products we achieved a whopping 40 times increment in application response time after integrating Apache Solr.
So to end your performance nightmares with nopCommerce, we have built a separate set of extension that transform nopCommerce into high performance e-commerce site. The first set of extension is aimed at integrating Apache Solr to transform nopCommerce to an enterprise grade e-commerce platform.
So, with this extension we are trying to bridge the gap that was created between nopCommerce site & a fast, scalable & reliable e-commerce site.
Our goal is to make nopCommerce fast, scalable & reliable. Apart from just integrating Apache Solr, we also fixed few other performance related issues of nopCommerce in our extension.
We will keep enhancing nopCommerce by working on our extensions for Apache Solr to make it even better. You can expect newer features & more enhanced performance with each upcoming version.
Apart from that we’re also working on other performance related extensions that help you make your nopCommerce faster, scalable & reliable.
Moreover, you can find more performance related tips & tweaks at our forum here.
