Over the past few months we’ve been having problems with the Media Temple DV server that hosts sites like this blog, ShopTalk, and Paravel. With each new post or show, we’d inevitably experience a wave of sluggish performance or downtime. This was frustrating. I think the tendency (for me at least) has been to incorrectly point a finger at Media Temple when the real issue was that we’re not experts at server optimization or management.
Thankfully for us, we got connected with the folks at W3 Edge who helped optimize our server and the sites that live there. With all the time we spend optimizing the sites we build, it’s foolish not to invest in having your server fine-tuned by people who know what they’re doing.
