What Is the Nexcess Cloud Accelerator?
The Nexcess Cloud Accelerator is an abstraction layer that sits in front of the cloud stack to significantly speed up load times. It is powered by NGINX, a high-performance web server responsible for managing static content (MicroCache).
Why Use the Cloud Accelerator?
The Nexcess Cloud Accelerator adds unparalleled performance and capacity to your hosting solution.
What Is a MicroCache?
A MicroCache keeps this content cached in memory so it can be re-served quickly.
Static asset caching is a necessity for high-performance application delivery. Because of this,
the Nexcess Cloud application stack was engineered to leverage NGINX. Nginx is an open-source,
high-performance HTTP server. We position NGINX in front of your application and configure it
to perform short-lived caching, in-memory, of frequently used assets. This provides near-instance
delivery to your end-users. When your assets need to come from disk, we serve them up on redundant
arrays of Solid State Disks.
