When we receive a request for a static asset that is stored on disk, our platform serves it directly without going through layers of cache or PHP execution.
Whenever requests for dynamic content arrive, we attempt to serve them from cache -- keyed for the profile of the user, device, even location -- thoroughly tuned so that flaws in expiration are not material to the experience. Should a request look suspicious, we avoid processing it at all.
These efforts free up tons of server resources.
Geographic Content Delivery Network
We offer single-click CDN integration that puts large pieces of content as near as possible to users. This drastically cuts time waiting for assets and reduces network congestion at the primary infrastructure, which further frees up resources for critical dynamic requests.
We prioritize human
traffic over robots
Our custom NGINX extension allows us to multiplex between tenants using the PHP rendering subsystem at our edge, which allows us to prioritize human requests over automated system requests, like bots, and provide a better experience for your visitors.
reduced latency reduces overhead
Our resources are close together to avoid hops between PHP/MySQL, cache, and filesystem, which improves backend rendering. We use SSD technology and avoid RAM saturation to absorb additional load without swapping. We keep open TCP connections to end clients to avoid the 3-RTT penalty of renewing the handshake.
We have obsessed over and tweaked these settings for years, learning where to compromise straight-line speed to improve throughput.
