MercadoLibre.com Supports Active, Growing Online Consumer Marketplace With Solid IT Infrastructure
MercadoLibre.com, with operations in more than 12 countries, is the largest online market in Latin America. The company provides a forum in which thousands of people meet daily to buy and sell their goods. Since the company was launched, it has attracted more than 23 million users from the region who carry out more than 1.5 million transactions each month. The challenge was to count on a flexible and scalable technological infrastructure that scales to support MercadoLibre.com's growth and to create a single, highly available database that is easy to access for online consumers and reoccurring buyers. MercadoLibre established a flexible and scalable technology platform with Oracle infrastructure software.
