Why you select Nginx for web server solution?
Without getting into too much technical detail I willl try to explain why Nginx better choice for especially for Magento Hosting.
Apache uses high amount of memory and CPU cycles when dealing with high amount of simultaneous HTTP/HTTPS connections. And this results in very high consumption of RAM. Every Apache child process uses around 100 MB of RAM and in a standart Magento installation on a dedicated server with 16 GB of RAM only and nearly can handle just 150 concurrent request only.
The major difference between Apache and Nginx are, Apache is process-based on the contrary Nginx is event-based So Nginx don’t require any new processes or threads to increase its level of concurrency and this result in very low memory footprint.
Magento server optimization does not mean putting every product on the market on your server environment.
Yeah! We have PHP-FPM in our server installations. Of course we also have APC. Yeah this must be the best magento optimized server hosting solution. It is also include Memcached. Nginx is the default server, Redis Cache is also included, HHVM HipHop Virtual machine also included. Varnish Cache also included. What about SPDY? Why not we can include it in your server infrastructure. I have one more question Google PageSpeed Module! Yes we also have it. What about FPC Full Page Cache Magento. Already included in our Magento Hosting Plans.
