PS:313 – Improving Performance

I have been working on plans to really improve options for projects – in a growing world of site builders and outages in hosting, it’s harder and harder to keep customers, and keep them happy.

This week I had a lot more planned, sadly this week has not gone as I had planned at all. I mean I thought it was Tuesday yesterday, and here we are on Wednesday. Doh.

But I’ve got some work done, some improvements in performance my usual test subject (aka this blog) is already showing an improvement from a C- to an A (working on the +) 😀 So quite the improvement.

Also working on a BIG eComm upgrade for a customer, been testing a server setup to bring their database into a huge HA cluster, and I’m excited about it! While the customer may not be a long-term customer, if I can off-load MySQL – might be able to keep him longer with improved performance, really handle things like high-traffic really well, so excited about the idea, right now in testing I’ve grabbed a copy of the site for a dev server that goes live tomorrow, I’m going to map all my DNS and give it a stress test or three. I think it’s going to work amazingly! If I’m right, time to schedule a change or three 🙂

I need to get to sleep, car maintenance today, then maybe a quick run downtown for talk about another project (that can greatly benefit from these wacky improvements I’m thinking about) so much to do, taxes, work, fun, sleep, etc. lots to do, little time. Here we go.
