Joshua Strebel, co-founder of Page.ly, released some new information about how their migration to what they’re calling “Page.ly3” is going. They have moved nearly 1/3 of all their sites to the improved setup, and have scheduled the rest to be moved later this month. If you’re part of that 1/3 that has already been migrated, you should notice a few changes:
- The new Varnish caching layer. 400-500% loading speed increase on cached pages for non-logged in users.
- Page.ly3 sites with FTP enabled are now using SFTP.
- Load balanced web requests and database reads.
There are a few performance issues with those using the new system, but Strebel says that they’re working with Firehost to optimize the performance so that it meets their desired levels.
You can read more of the update in Strebel’s words on the Page.ly blog. If you’re a Page.ly user, have you noticed any changes to your sites?
