When it comes to making your Drupal site faster there are two main areas of focus: performance and scalability.
Scalability refers to how many concurrent pages your site can serve without adversely affecting performance. This is affected by limitations like how many requests the server can handle before it slows down, and considerations in Drupal's code that allow for mitigating these limitations. It can be improved by making changes to your infrastructure that increase its ability to handle more requests quickly.
- Configure Drupal core and contributed modules for optimal performance
- Test a site's performance and ability to handle multiple concurrent users
- Make a Drupal site faster by using various caching systems like Varnish, Redis, and a CDN
Our tutorials are up-to-date. There are other topics related to performance and scalability that we have not covered. See the external resources for additional guidance on this subject.
