In the open source, e-commerce platform community, Magento has established itself as the most popular e-commerce platform in the market. It is supported by a very strong developer community and it fits most merchants' needs. Despite this leadership, Magento has a major problem; it is very slow. To serve customers in a more efficient way, we need a tool that can optimize our sites' performance. Even if the tool is able to boost the speed of the site to some extent, it can still be a very crucial factor when there are so many competing websites on the market.
This book will start by providing a list of trustee companies to host a Magento website with high traffic. Also, we will discuss the required configurations in terms of amount of RAM, CPU, and HDD.
