Nexcess, a leading provider of performance-optimized Magento hosting, has published The Definitive Guide to Optimizing Magento 2, a detailed technical white paper that reveals how Nexcess achieves unbeatable performance across its range of Magento hosting platforms.
In 2013, when Nexcess released its first guide to Magento performance optimization, it quickly became a canonical resource for the Magento community. In the intervening five years, a lot changed: Magento 2 and PHP 7 were released, server hardware evolved, and virtualization became the norm.
The Definitive Guide to Optimizing Magento 2 is a brand new research-based optimization guide for today’s Magento stores. Magento is a complex and resource-hungry application that runs on an intricate software stack. Optimization is essential to achieving the best possible performance.
“Magento is capable of supporting eCommerce stores of any size, but making the most of that power requires careful optimization,“ commented Chris Wells, President and CEO of Nexcess. “Our new white paper combines knowledge we gained over a decade of building the fastest Magento hosting platforms, an in-depth understanding of Magento internals, and rigorous experimentation.”
The new white paper, the result of extensive testing, includes comprehensive configuration settings and benchmarks that empower Magento users to maximize resource use and build low-latency high-performance retail experiences.
Intended to be a practical guide for Magento optimization, the white paper discusses dozens of configuration changes for the operating system (CentOS 7), PHP, PHP-FPM, PHP OpCache, Apache, MySQL (MariaDB), Magento 2’s built-in session and full-page caching, and Varnish, with additional information about using Haproxy and Nginx as reverse proxies for TLS termination.
The Definitive Guide to Optimizing Magento 2 concludes with a series of benchmarks that compare performance differences with various configurations.
