To cut to the chase, this is what Cachoid gets you out of the box.
“As part of that effort, today we’re including a new signal in our search ranking algorithms: site speed.” — Google Search Quality Team
Page and File Speed!
A fast page-loading site! Your pages, not just files, are cached for maximal speed. In case you’re asking, what’s the big deal with fast everything? Well, speed is absolutely primordial to your success online.
“Two hundred fifty milliseconds, either slow or fast, is close to the magic number now for competitive advantage on the Web” — Harry Shum, Microsoft
If your website is miliseconds slower than your competitor’s:
- You rank lower for keyword lookups on search engines
- You miss out on tangible revenue
- Your branding suffers
“No matter how you measure it, a faster page speed is better. Many people have found that faster pages both rank and convert better.” — moz.com
Real Dollar Savings
Cachoid leverages smart caching so it absorbs and serves traffic instead of it hitting your server(s) directly. A typical Cachoid node absorbs between 70% and 90% of your Web traffic. Therefore your TCO figures decrease dramatically. We’ve had clients reduce all of their server fleet to one virtual machine because it no longer was necessary to keep renting so much server hardware.
Varnish and Stuff
Not all Varnish instances are created equal. A fully optimized Varnish VCL can improve caching by as much as 300% over a pristine installation. Here are some other features we built into Cachoid:
- Modsecurity OWASP rules with whitelisting
- Device Detection
- SSL/TLS Caching
- Smart Load Balacing
- WordPress, Github.io, AWS S3, Drupal VCLs
- Cache API
- Instant Provisioning
- Statistics and Varnish health
- Access log download
- WordPress plugin for auto-purging
