Internet users are impatient. A Zona Research study
found that if your site doesn't load in 8 seconds, up
to 1/3 of your visitors will leave.
Savvy eBusinesses recognize that simply having a Web
presence is no longer enough to succeed. They need reliable
high-performance Web sites that load quickly. If you
have a business on the web you know how important your
site loading speed is. If your pages do not load swiftly
then you are losing money.
At Lypha your web pages and scripts load blazingly
fast thanks to our Page Booster engine.
Using a combination of industry standard caching &
compression software from Zend, IntenseSpeed
and HyperSpace Communications, we're able to maximize
the performance of our servers and minimize page loading
The first technology we use to speed up our server is a method
known as caching. Caching engines are implemented to reduce
page loading time and script execution by performing optimizations
and various types of caching, using advanced techniques that
yield much better performance -- usually from two to four
times more requests per second. These engines also play an
important part in cutting down latency by as much as 20-fold,
by preventing dynamic pages from doing any repetitive work,
and reducing the turnaround time for each request.
The second method we use to boost our server performance
is SS/Compression using mod_gzip, a compression module
which uses the standard zlib compression library to
compress output. The idea is to compress data being
sent out from the Web server, and have the browser decompress
this data on the fly, thus reducing the amount of data
sent and increasing the page display speed. Using HTTP
compression, a performance gain of 150-160% is achieved
across all Lypha.com web servers. Using HTTP Compression
web pages can be 90% or so smaller and images can be
up to 50% or so smaller (depending on how much they
are compressed already).
