High-speed hosting in the era of CMSs: a challenging experience

High-speed hosting in the era of CMSs: a challenging experience

The advent of WordPress and other content management systems has completely changed the picture. Here is the solution that Promo.it offers to providers

Content Management system: lots of credit for website creators - a big burden for the hosting suppliers

The advent of so-called CMSs, content management systems, has made it easy to develop websites on an existing infrastructure and it has certainly facilitated the task of graphic designers and programmers: a large community of developers handle and develop on a daily basis the software which is available for users, significantly reducing the time needed to develop web projects. However, the impact that these CMSs have on the underlying services that is to say website hosting, is often underestimated.

On the other hand, CMS software needs constant updating

CMSs have several problems. The first is not a trivial one: development starts from the installation of a personalized CMS version, which must be maintained and updated over time. If not updated correctly and constantly, the product becomes easy prey for hackers as it will be full of unchecked bugs. The more famous the site is, the greater the number of related bugs: our site will easily be attacked and taken off-line.

The more these CMSs are developed, the more hardware they require.

As new products such as CMS tools are implemented, they become ever more difficult to manage. What was once a simple call to an html page containing texts and images, today involves a huge amount of requests that have to be handled by hardware. A non-optimized server means response times which are unacceptably-slow for a high-level web site.

Promo.it's solution Phpapp guarantees scalability and reliability also to users of WordPress or other CMS

That is why Promo.it has developed its own project over the years. It consists of a highly reliable infrastructure with a scalable number calculating machines handling the http requests with the support of a Storage Area Network Netapp, which is shared through NFS protocol.

Promo.it's solution Phpapp guarantees scalability and reliability also to users of WordPress or other CMS.

The result of this solution is total scalability and reliability both for the calculating machines and the storage area. The solution that Promo.it offers is available not only to their clients but also to other Internet Service Providers who suddenly have to face the same problem: they are forced to refuse requests from important clients because of the high costs of the most popular CMSs – in fact, every new client who wants a hosting service becomes a problem for many companies. With Promo.it a new contract is no longer a new headache!
