The Pluck Performance Technology layer is designed to serve the read/write Web at Internet scale. It routinely delivers call responses in milliseconds, sustains 10,000 transactions per second in a single community, and beats uptime expectations. It is tuned to focus on the consumer’s experience so that the context of any given consumer is preserved, while always delivering the most recent contributions back to that consumer. The Performance Technology layer leverages several levels of caching and a robust expiry system to insure that results are contextually consistent and predictably delivered. The Pluck platform also plugs easily into a brand’s chosen CDN.
The Performance Technology layer is engineered to let Pluck servers scale horizontally with ease, to provide additional capacity as community activity grows. This happens dynamically, with no changes in integration or configuration. The network infrastructure upstream of the application servers is also designed to handle multiple network carriers, load balancing of traffic, and traffic routing based on demand.
