Why should you be excited about this?
Reverse proxy caching greatly speeds up websites by saving site pages in server memory so subsequent visitors gets this 'cached' version rather than running all the Drupal code and database processes again.
"Offering our customers the ability to configure the Edge Cache with one or two clicks and to ensure complete Drupal support was a critical component in our design and testing... our benchtests of Edge Cache blow traditional hosting out the water," says Founder of HudHosting Paul Hudson.
HudHosting’s own Drupal performance benchmarks show their Edge Cache can deliver over 2000 requests per second which is at least 100x faster than a typical shared hosting environment. Not only are sties faster but also they can handle vastly more visits at the same time. That means your site can scale with traffic spikes from viral campaigns on Digg.
This type of caching has been common best practice for years now however the technical knowhow and time required to configure means the vast majority of Drupal sites haven't been able to take advantage of it.
"Customers switching to us from other shared hosting providers or even VPS solutions are impressed with the grunt of our plans. It's great to hear that sort of feedback and validates the effort and belief we've put into designing our solutions."
