Magento shopping is very resource intensive.
Our hosting platform is optimised to ensure Magento run at optimal speed.
Below are a list of optimisations do on all our servers:
- APC Opcode Cache - We have set up APC and enabled on all hosting accounts. We provide high shm_size limit so most of your Magento files will be servced from memory.
- Nginx - All pages are served through the reverse proxy. Nginx is more efficient than apache and all static contents are served through it.
- FastCGI - PHP is run in FastCGI evironment which provides another layer of optimisation
- Optimised MySQL - MySQL settings have been optimised to make use of memory for caching.
- RAID 10 SAS hard drives - Our servers are configured in RAID 10 using SAS drives to provide the best IO.
