A little while ago we announced our switch from Nginx to LiteSpeed Web Server. Since switching we’ve noticed a massive improvement in page load time and overall performance.
As promised, here is our benchmark of Nginx vs LiteSpeed Web Server.
2 vCPU’s – 2.6 GHz Intel Xeon E5 (Sandy Bridge)
8 GB RAM
20 GB SSD
LiteSpeed Web Server 5.2.7
LiteSpeed Cache 2.2.3
Benchmarks using ApacheBench were done locally to avoid network fluctuations. For our benchmark, we ran keep-alive since that is how users normally browse sites.
