Last week Chinese e-commerce giant Alibaba shocked the web with news that its subsidiaries Taobao (like a Chinese eBay) and T-mall (like Amazon) sold a massive $3.06 billion in product in a single 24-hour period.
Wow. Just wow.
Just the infrastructure to handle that sheer volume of transactions is quite impressive.

Its really unbelievable. But with an increase in the number of ecommerce users, I guess it is possible. Maybe they were preparing themselves for something like this so the infrastructure has to be really good to handle something so huge.
