WordPress is the world’s most popular open-source content management system (CMS). Because for many organizations, the website drives revenue and reputation, keeping WordPress and its underlying MySQL database server up 100% of the time is crucial.
Tailoring code to take advantage of database scale out is very challenging for WordPress. Code-level app tuning not only takes considerable time and resources the first time, but every time a new security update comes out, you may need to re-modify your custom WordPress code.
ScaleArc offers a compelling alternative. ScaleArc deploys transparently in front of WordPress and MySQL, offering unprecedented uptime and performance – with no changes to WordPress or the MySQL database.
