Magento Performance Optimization

Magento is a very resource-intensive system- which very few are aware of. Even though your magento is running on the quite powerful server, even though you are spending hundreds of dollar a month for its optimization, it is still performing slowly. The only reason behind this is lack of awareness about it being a resource-intensive. This situation is quite common when the Magento is installed on an expensive holding or VDS-server without any Magento performance optimization and sever settings.

Each store is unique and requires individual professional investigation. Most speed bottlenecks are connected with architecture of your custom modules, not optimized code and sometimes Magento core behavior. This is why we recommend entrusting the job to a certified team that can perform an advanced Magento performance optimization, code optimization, as well as server optimization.

Most hosting providers speed up your store based on additional configurations of the server environment (install PHP cache, or change specific settings of the web-server). Usually it works great and we also perform such optimizations. However if the problem is in the Magento core or 3-rd party Magento modules, you need a team of certified Magento developers who have experience in Magento core architecture and performance optimization. In most cases, both the server environment and Magento code need tweaking at the same time to bring the best possible performance result.

Our team will perform a complex analysis of your store including both server and Magento speed optimization analysis.
