October 28th — Scale WordPress with Jason Vance

So you have started a blog or ecommerce site using WordPress. You’ve carefully crafted your blog/e-commerce site, spent hours and hours responding to you visitors and customer. Then one day you write something extraordinary. Reddit picks it up, it goes to the front page and….your site starts giving 503 errors. You’ve just lost money and an opportunity.

As a Sr. System Operation Engineer, I’ve been responsible for many high traffic blogs and ecommerce sites using WordPress. Over the years, I’ve learned many techniques to scale WordPress from a hundreds to millions of page views a day and get millisecond response time. During this presentation, I’m going to give you tips on how you can scale your site using either OpenStack or Amazon AWS and get optimal page response to the pages that you serve up. If you’re on shared hosting don’t fret, I can give you tips and tricks on how to speed up your site and get 3-5 times performance increase on it as well.
