Optimizing Hosting Services with Intel
WP Engine powers some of its WordPress Digital Experience Platform services with 2nd Gen Intel® Xeon® Scalable processor-based “C2” (compute optimized) instances on GCP. When combined with other software optimizations, WP Engine achieved platform performance that was 60% faster than before. Compute Engine offers a range of Intel® architectures that enable WP Engine to provide its customers with the best possible services per unique workloads.
C2 allows WP Engine to enhance and optimize its platform performance, thanks to fully transparent architecture, all while optimizing compute and memory within its VMs.
WP Engine also takes advantage of Intel-based GCP “Live Migration” instances to run VMs with zero planned downtime, regardless of system maintenance, micro-code updates, and other events that might take place. All of this combines to make WP Engine a leader in performant infrastructure among WordPress platforms today.
