I love to improve our servers on holidays. You have time, no phone rings and you can get things done.
Today I have added more space to the tradebit cluster, so we do not have to move stuff around all the time. We are also now faster in Europe with 2 more machines in Amsterdam. Thanks to Softlayer, these new boxes came quickly and well prepared to fit into our infrastructure.
I think the last days confirm our efforts: speed was never that high and in combination with the new Content Delivery Network, we are almost double as fast as we have been in January. Now it is time to do some coding for our merchants again. Some requested new statistics and in the next 2 weeks I should be able to at least add some functionality in that area.
Here is the latest crawl stat from the webmaster tools on Google:
As you can see: the whole delivery process is much much faster and the search engines (Google here, but Bing and the others are over it, too) take it - well - faster
