Servebolt MariaDB is built and tuned specifically to perform for PHP based CMS’s. We maintain and deploy new performance improvements on a continuous basis.
The workload of modern content management systems differs from standard database uses. Servebolt databases are optimized from the hardware level, up to integration with the CMS platform of your choice.
For modern web frameworks and CMSes database performance is crucial. The final HTML can not be returned to the browser, before all database queries are finished processing. Hence, speeding up the database query time will result in a faster experience for your website’s visitors.
Benchmark tests show that Servebolt MariaDB databases perform exceptionally fast compared to other hosting providers, with between 40% and several hundreds of % faster than other hosting providers.
For WordPress, the WPPerformanceTester plugin aggregates benchmark data for the public on ReviewSignal.com. Feel free to sign up for a free test, and install this on a test Bolt on Servebolt, and compare your results against other providers.
