Nexcess Publishes Infographic on Magento Performance Optimization

Southfield, MI – Nexcess, a leading provider of optimized Magento hosting and a Magento Platinum Hosting partner, has announced the publication of an infographic that explains how its industry-leading high-performance Magento environment was created. Nexcess’s Magento hosting offers performance improvements of 1,300% when compared to industry-standard configurations. The infographic, based on Nexcess’s recently published Magento Whitepaper: Best Practices for Optimum Performance, is the culmination of the company’s rigorous research and development process, which tested multiple hardware and software combinations in order to arrive at the perfect server setup for the world’s most popular eCommerce platform.

Magento is a feature-rich eCommerce application used by tens of thousands of online retailers to provide customers with a premium shopping experience. But, without skilled and expert hosting, Magento is unable to offer the performance and responsiveness that eCommerce shoppers expect and retailers demand — slow sites cost retailers billions of dollars each year. Nexcess aimed to create a hosting platform that combines Magento’s power with a dedicated, highly optimized server and network environment tightly focused on speed.

“We hope that by publishing the Maximizing Magento Performance infographic, clients will see how much work we put into building our Magento hosting platform,” commented Chris Wells, President and CEO of Nexcess, “Anyone can claim to offer fast eCommerce hosting, but we’re proud of the meticulous attention and extensive effort we dedicated to building a platform that can truly provide the environment eCommerce retailers need to give their customers a flawless shopping experience.”

After a comprehensive testing and development process, which involved exhaustive performance and load testing comparisons of database applications, web servers, web server and operating system configurations, caching strategies, and the creation of the Turpentine Magento extension to enhance Magento’s integration with the Varnish HTTP accelerator, the result is a Magento hosting environment perfectly suited for eCommerce stores ranging from small boutique outlets to the largest enterprise eCommerce operations.

Nexcess’s fully PCI-compliant Magento hosting plans range from shared hosting to multi-server clusters, and all leverage the knowledge and expertise developed by Nexcess to provide a fast, secure, and reliable foundation for eCommerce retail. The company’s Secure Isolated Platform servers combine an optimal software stack, including Apache, the Percona database, APC, Magento Full Page Caching, and Turpentine, with enterprise-grade hardware — all at a competitive price and available from numerous locations both in the US and internationally, including Surrey, UK, and Brisbane, Australia.
