How is Redis used to improve our website’s performance?

Redis is an object cache (not a query cache) that operates at the WordPress level and available with all of our VPS solutions, free. Redis is a part of our advanced caching umbrella catered towards optimizing your WordPress site performance.

We configure this to increase the access speed to major entities, posts, users, tags, etc. on your Amazon Aurora (MySQL) database, creating less friction for your backend resources by serving reused cached objects. Given there are sane default settings in place, we can be flexible and work with you in fine tuning that list for optimization purposes as necessary.

Redis runs on the same instance as your webserver. It’s only used by your WordPress site with the data in Redis coming from your WordPress app exclusively. There’s an instance used for PHP only, sessions (if you are using them) and the object cache.

If you’re seeing extended response times and limited scaling for your eCommerce, membership or blog site, Redis can be just one of the many benefits Pagely can offer you. Chat with our sales team to find out how we can reach your goals together.
