Apache & MySQL Performance Tuning

A lot of web traffic is a good problem to have. There are, however, challenges that come along with high volume websites. Database engines need to be optimized, web servers need to be be fine tuned, and monitoring services need to be put in place. While Apache and MySQL are fairly optimized out of the box, there is always room for improvement. Before you throw more hardware and money at a problem, consider optimization and tuning. Sometimes a few minor tweaks can have a large impact on your website’s performance.

Our staff has the expertise and tools to ensure your website is optimized for your unique situation. Our optimization projects start with a full system analysis. This is followed by an in-depth review of the web and database assets. Once we understand your current setup, the website is loaded on to our in-house test environment. Then we run your website through a litany of bandwidth and load tests to see how it performs. Once optimization is complete, we develop a deployment strategy and push the changes to your live server. Finally, we place monitoring systems in place and perform ongoing reviews to ensure that your website is rock solid.
