To optimize the performance of an emerging story portal for higher traffic.
To reduce bandwidth for download at the visitor's side.
The story portal was already built and needed performance optimisation.
SOLUTION AND APPROACH
We analysed various aspects of optimisation mechanisms after testing the performance status of the website with our proprietary testing tools.
The task is divided into five items:
- Activating Apache HTTP compression.
- Enabling cache for content, images and scripts.
- Enhancing usability during the slowed download and supporting image caching.
- We also enabled a server-side cache to save load on the database.
