Southfield, MI (PRWEB) April 22, 2015
Nexcess, a provider of premium performance-optimized Magento hosting and a Magento Platinum Hosting Partner, has published a new white paper with extensive details of the company’s research into Magento 2 performance.
The Magento 2 Performance Overview white paper provides a comprehensive breakdown of the differences between Magento 1.x and Magento 2 that impact performance and scalability, discussing upgrades to the LAMP stack and changes to frontend and backend components, including the processing of static assets, cache pools, indexing performance improvements, and the new Magento 2 application modes.
The white paper also includes a detailed methodology and results of performance comparison testing on Magento 1.x and Magento 2 carried out by Nexcess’ Magento hosting experts.
“Magento 2 is a huge update that radically changes many of the eCommerce application’s performance characteristics and requirements,” commented Chris Wells, President and CEO of Nexcess. “Our current Magento platform is finely tuned to run Magento 1, and we’re deeply engaged in research and development to ensure a smooth transition to Magento 2 upon its final release. As usual, we’re happy to release the results of our ongoing testing and research so that it can benefit the wider Magento community.”
Among the highlights of the white paper are detailed discussions of Magento 2’s static asset caching and application modes, which have the potential to significantly improve the flexibility and effectiveness of Magento page delivery performance; the complete overhaul of indexing, which brings partial reindexing to Magento for the first time; the built-in page caches and Redis support; and upgrades to the LAMP stack on which Magento 2 will run, with a particular focus on performance improvements introduced with support for Zend OPcache integration.
Nexcess currently supports the Magento 2 Beta for eCommerce retailers who would like to experience the coming changes before the final release.
