Full Stack Support

Full Stack Support

Our full stack support includes all components you use on the site – nginx, mysql, php, Magento / WordPress / standard framework, redis, mongodb, memcached, etc.
We also support any architecture – from single server to autoscaling infrastructure.
In combination of our devops support we help with documentation, automation and reconfiguration of architecture as the application grows.

We support all versions of Magento any sized store / architecture.

Magento is powerful but notorious for its infrastructure maintenance overhead. We take this headache away from you. We support all components of your stack – from nginx, mysql and php to sphinx or SOLR search engine, redis caching and even autoscaling. All our services cater to all components.

If you have small projects to execute such as integration with new shipper or warehouse, improved caching via use of block caches, small UI updates, we have developers on staff to help you with such projects.

With no long term contracts – paid just by the hour.

We support any standard php frameworks – such as cakephp, laravel 4.x and 5.x.

We discuss your architecture and make a bespoke support plan.

MEAN stack including nginx based load balancing across multiple instances of nodejs application, mongodb memory management.

We support microservices architecture with both multiple instances per host as well as service instance per host or container patterns.

php configuration for performance requires knowing how many CPUs are available to run php. For example, if you have a single 8 CPU (4 cores with hyperthreading) and you are running the entire stack including mysql, redis, nginx we would use a max of 6 for simultaneous php processes.

If you bulk upload products, you would need a way to bulk upload images. There is no reliable way of giving a write only access to just the upload folder. Our stack supports uploading to a folder whose content is them magically moved to the final destination.

Our stack also includes a image optimizer. Magento creates right sized images in the product/cache folder. Our stack automagically optimizes the images. Original image files are not changed.

css and js files are minfied by a “offline” process. Minified files are sometimes erroneous. This is due to the minifier being strict about syntax. For example a css file with a “//” comment. With our minifier system, you can exclude files.

Blacklist IP addresses that are either suspicious or spamy. Magento reports the IP addresses that perform actions like creating a new registration. Alternatively log files can be analyzed to determine the list. luroConnect / Insight reports top IP addresses hitting the site. Once you know what IPs you do not want, add to our blacklist. Our nginx configuration will do the rest.

A basic DOS protection is to restrict number of hits from a single IP address. Our configuration file defaults to enabling this protection. Hits from the same IP address are limited to the rate specified. Hits faster than the rate are first queued and then rejected. luroConnect / Insight reports these for review.

Your own IP addresses can be whitelisted to bypass this check.

When you upgrade your code you need to put the site in maintenance. Magento’s default functionality is a switch – either everyone sees a maintenance page or every one sees the live site. Our private mode, implemented as a nginx configuration, has whiltelist IPs that get to see the live site while other IPs see the maintenance page.

We can analyze your site for free

Schedule a call

Before the call we will analyze your site using public information. We will ask you to give us a 1 day apache or nginx log file of your site. Our half hour consultation will try to identify what steps if any you should take to improve your sites performance goals.
