Well, its not!
It still starts with Linux, Apache (Varnish + Redis), MySQL and PHP-FPM. We take the recommended Magento2 stack settings and set them up in a strict and secure way.
The devil however is, as always, in the detail.
All elements of the driving software are tuned for performance and the stack is setup with your e-commerce requirements firmly in mind.
We then add a dynamic element and re-assess your usage and requirements regularly, tweak your settings further and if needed swap out technologies until the most effective software assembly has been reached for your unique project.
We do not bundle in unnecessary software useful for some and not others, and we do not bloat the stack with add-ons and extensions.
Out of the box our server stack delivers blistering performance when paired with our dedicated hardware.
The only thing that will slow it down is your code, and we can offer advice and support on how to reduce the impact this can have.
