A recent study by Cloud Spectator has revealed that Liquid Web is actually beating Amazon, DigitalOcean and Rackspace when it comes to cloud app and website performance. This mostly comes down to Liquid Web’s virtual machines performing more transactions at faster processing speeds.
Website speed is a key factor to visitor satisfaction, and a lot of users don’t bother waiting more than a couple of seconds for the page to load. Faster websites also have better search engine optimization and conversions.
In its report, Cloud Spectator focused on each of the four LAMP stack components: Apache, PHP, MySQL and Linux VM. The LAMP stack performance plays a big role in user’s overall app or website experience.
Considering web and cloud technologies continue to be adopted at an exceptional rate, we should expect SMBs, developers, designers and digital agencies to become more reliant on them in the following five years. Liquid Web has recently surveyed 450 web-dependent professionals, and about 80 percent of them shared the same view.
