Why Choose Us

Our team of experts help you with the right configuration of your server requirements, the right set of plugins to optimise your website pages and the correct recommendations to improve the website speed. We speed up SocialEngine Websites, so they’re not fast, but the fastest for rendering amazing user experiences to the website visitors


Services We Deliver:

1.) Host website on AWS: Our expert team will host your SocialEngine powered website on Amazon Web Services (AWS), which can be automatically scaled up if there’s a spike in the number of visitors on your web / mobile application. A new instance can be spun up very, very quickly to handle load in events where there’s a sudden rise in traffic. You can again easily scale down when the traffic decreases, and you will pay only for what you use.

  • Work with Amazon S3 Buckets: Amazon Simple Storage Services (Amazon S3) will be used as a cloud storage system for the file uploaded on your website like users' photos, videos, music, documents, etc.
  • Work with Amazon Aurora: Amazon Aurora is a relational database engine that combines speed and reliability of a commercial database with simplicity and cost effectiveness of an open source database, freeing the website owner and administrators from executing tasks such as provisioning, patching, backup, recovery, failure detection, and repair.
  • Work with AWS-CloudFront: It is one of the global and most popular content delivery network (CDN) service which securely delivers videos, audios, data, applications and APIs to your viewers with low latency and at a higher transfer speed for a smooth user experience.
  • Work with Elastic Load Balancing and Auto Scaling: ELB is a robust load balancing service for Amazon Web Services (AWS) deployment. ELB automatically divides the incoming traffic and scales the resources to meet the traffic requirements. Elastic Load Balancing also provides fault tolerance for your applications by automatically balancing traffic across healthy instances, containers and IP addresses.

2.) Setup and Install APCu and Redis Cache: APCu caches the output of the SocialEngine bytecode compiler in shared memory, thus reducing parsing and disk I/O overhead for later requests; and a shared memory cache for user data. Redis Cache makes your SocialEngine more responsive and faster because of the low-latency, high-throughput capabilities of the Redis engine. This way the split cache layer allows your data to scale independently for much more efficient use of resources in your application layer.

3.) Measure Performance: We will analyse the reasons due to which performance is poor after analysing SE and plugins source codes, logging all problematic database queries, problematic SE flows / pages, analyzing schedule-based scripts, server services to find out which can be optimized on your social network.

  • Optimize load time based on analyzing and optimizing front-end source code (HTML, javascript, css, leveraging browser-cache, etc). Your user will see your website load much faster if it is optimized properly.
  • By optimizing and solving problematic SQL queries, we will use server resources more effectively so the server can handle more concurrent users and reducing user wait time on pages containing problematic queries.
  • Further source code analyzing and optimizing for problematic SE flows / pages.
  • Analyzing schedule-based scripts and settings to be sure it will not consume much resources on servers.
  • Monitoring server services (such as how much memory/cpu a service runs) if required.

4.) Configure Best Settings of SocialEngine & Plugins: We will configure your SocialEngine and plugins settings of your website to yield optimal performance to deliver the best user experience for the website visitors.

5.)Install Plugins that enhance website performance:

Minify Plugin: By installing this plugin the inline JavaScript and CSS will be compressed. The size of the files will be smaller and quite helpful to improve your page load speed as well as google page speed.

Page Cache Plugin: Page Cache is a transparent cache for the pages which originate from the secondary storage device such as a hard disk drive (HDD). This plugin helps in utilising the unused portions of the main memory (RAM) by the operating system for page caching, resulting in quicker access to the content of cached page and overall performance improvement of your website.

6.) Share Pre & Post installation performance reports: Our team will share a report of your website’s performance in terms of page speed before implementing the ways to improve the speed of your SocialEngine website. The team will also share the website’s performance report after the work is completed on your website to improve the speed of your SocialEngine website. These reports will not only help you analyse the improvement in the page load speed and page speed of your website pages but will also have some recommendations to improve the page load speed further.

7.) Monitoring: Our team will monitor and share timely updates for 2 weeks from the date of completion of the speeding up service for your website. During this period, if there is some fine tuning required to optimise the website speed further, our team will be happy to assist.
