  1. Distributed scaling and disaster recovery: The database’s storage capacity can be scaled up to 100 TB, and a single database can be scaled out to 16 nodes, which can meet enterprise-level requirements for big data storage. Even in cases of high concurrency, the inventory of commodities will not be oversold or overbought.
  2. Active geo-redundancy and global synchronization: By using a highly reliable solution with a zero recovery point objective (RPO), POLARDB provides a data reliability of up to 99.9999999999% with 6 replicas across zones. Remote read-only nodes implement efficient synchronization. The kernel layer supports global disaster recovery and provides the powerful capability of updating hot lines. All these features helped to provide a superior user experience during the huge traffic peak seen at the midnight launch of the Double 11 promotion.
  3. High performance, outstanding elasticity and low cost: The database features minute-level elasticity and can cope with traffic peaks in a cost efficient manner.
