A fast site can place higher in search engines 1 and directly increase profits. Amazon has stated that every 100ms of latency costs them 1% in profit. With the Full Page Cache for Magento and complementary Magento Minify Javascript / CSS extension (optional, sold separate) and Magento Cache Crawler extension (optional, sold separate), your site will run at its fastest. In fact, if you are curious you can view the 3rd party speed test of Extendware

How important is a fast Magento store? Well consider the following:
  • Google considers site speed when ranking Web sites and determining how many pages to crawl1
  • Forrester research has determined that 45% of consumers expect a Web site to render in 2 seconds and 52% said that site speed is important to their site loyalty2
  • Gomez found that up to 40% of customers will abandon a shopping site if it takes more than 3 seconds to load and every second delay results in a 7% reduction in revenue3

Did you know the Extendware Page Cache is really 3 different caches in one?
  • Primary Page Cache - A super fast cache that does not even connect to a database, does not generate sessions, and handles most all requests to your store.
  • Secondary Page Cache - A fast cache with hole punch support which is used after a product is added to a cart or if the customer is logged into your store. ±
  • Lightening Page Cache - An extremely fast cache that turns your site into static pages. As a result, 5000 pages per second is very reasonable. There is two versions: Simple which is about 2x faster than the primary cache. Then there is Advanced± which is up to 200 faster than the primary cache. Very few stores will have enough traffic for the Advanced mode, but support can be contacted if your store needs this level of speed. New!

What to look for in a full page cache solution:

Many people mistakenly think that all full page extensions are the same. This is not true. Unfortunately, you oftentimes will not realize the limitations of a full page cache solution until after you have used it for a while. Some things to look for when evaluating a full page cache solution are the following:

  • Easy of Use - The Extendware Page Cache is plug-in-play for most stores. Our Page Cache has a lot of configuration options so it can cache a variety of cases, but it will auto-configure to your store and in most situations you do not need to change any of the default configuration options. It is that easy!
  • Accuracy - Many cache solutions cache pages that should not be cached and do not cache pages that should be cached. This issue can be difficult to detect during testing. The most common issue is how to cache the sorting of products in your product grids. This preference is stored in the user sessions. Most cache solutions either do not handle this correct (the cache gets tainted) or the cache has to be disabled after sorting which slows down the user experience.
  • Breadth - Most people only compare cache solutions based on how fast it is on an individual page. The more important thing is how fast it makes your overall site. This is determined by breadth. This means, how many pages are cached and how often are cached pages being served to end users? Our solution will serve cached pages after a user logs in, adds a product to a cart, it can easily cache 3rd party extension pages, full page flushing is not required after editing products, and you can even use the Magento Crawler to help ensure pages are always cached±.
  • Development - Purchasing a solution that is no longer actively developed / maintained is probably not in your best interest. You can look at the changelog to see how many releases we have released and to see how we constantly add new capabilities.
  • Configurabality - Configuration needs to be flexible and easy to use. This is related to accuracy and breadth of a cache. In our experience, if configuration is difficult, then store owners will avoid configuring their site and will not take full advantage of the cache. This is why we made it easy to add support for 3rd party extensions and tweak things, so that you can ensure the extensions performs optimally for your setup.

  • Multi-level cache support
    The Full Page Cache is really three cache systems combined in one.
    1. Primary Page Cache - The primary cache is an extremely fast full page cache that increases server throughput by more than 100+ times with a corresponding decrease in First Byte Time (this number will be even higher if your pages are slow due to a slow database). Requests that hit the first level cache will not even use the database.
    2. Secondary Page Cache - The second level cache± is an advanced full page cache with hole punch support. The second level cache will even work for logged in users, users with items in their cart, etc and further improves server throughput with a corresponding decrease in latency.
    3. Lightening Page Cache - The lightening cache level is the fastest. Between 2-200 times faster than the primary cache level (200-2000+ more throughput than no cache). The Simple mode is used by most stores though there is an Advanced± mode that can be used for larger stores. New!
  • Multiple store / domain / language support
    Multi-store / domain setups are fully supported. There is no need to worry about cross-site cache tainting or other issues commonly associated with other cache products.
  • Multiple currency support
    Whether you have 1 currency or 100 currencies the page cache will ensure there are no taint issues and users always see the correct currency.
  • First class mobile theme support
    Mobile themes, theme overrides, and more are easily supported using segmentable useragents. Simply input the useragent patterns you want to match on (example: iphone|blackberry|android) and your cache will be segmented accordingly.
  • Reduce server response time
    After using our page cache your server response time will have a measurable decrease which translates to an increase in speed.
  • Easily cache 3rd party extensions, layered navigation extensions, ajax, etc
    3rd party extensions, ajax requests, and more can be easily cached using our technology, so you can ensure the most number of pags are being cached as possible.±
  • Multiple backend support
    The full page cache system supports elevent different cache backends for maximum flexibility. With multiple backends, your needs are met no matter the size of your store: ±
    • File system cache
    • Memcached with multiple server support
    • Redis with multiple server support
    • APC
    • XCache
    • Multi: APC / File Hybrid
    • Multi: XCache / File Hybrid
    • Multi: Memcached / File Hybrid
  • Multi-level hybrid cache backends New!
    Multi-level hybrid cache backends enable you to have the speed advantage of a memory based backend with the storage capacity of your hard disk. Perfect for low memory environments. ±
  • Increase requests per second, decreae latency, and save the database server
    The primary cache will increase requests per second (and decrease latency accordingly) by 100+ times. The secondary cache will increase requests per second by 50+ times. All requests hitting the primary cache will not use the database, so your database load will decrease significantly. The end result is a much faster, more responsive site.
  • Hole punch support
    The second level cache supports hole punches. This means that pages can be cached even when there is dynamic content, the user is logged in, etc. All the hole punches (11 in total) that are needed by a default Magento installation are included. Creating new hole punches is super easy. No need to edit config files or anything.
  • Flush specific sections of the cache New!
    If there are major changes to the Web site that only affect certain page types (cms pages, product pages, catalog pages, etc), then it is much more efficient to only flush those pages and not other pages. We support selective flushing of page types, so that more pages are in the cache more often.
  • Support catalog sorting
    Many other solutions cannot manage catalog sorting correctly because of how Magento uses session variables in sorting. We can handle sorting even in our primary super fast cache without an issue.
  • Cache exactly what you want and no more
    We provide you all the tools you need to ensure exactly what you want cached is cached and what you do not want cached is not cached. This is extremely important as you do not want dynamic content to taint your cache! We offer advanced page rules, block disqualifies, cookie disqualifies, and more. Everything is already configured optimally for most Magento installations and all these things can be configured via the graphical interface. Competing solutions fall extremely short on this front and the result can be a tainted cache.
  • Auto-tagging and auto-flushing when updating products, categories, and cms pages New!
    A cache is only effective as long as there are cached items. Normally a full page cache must be flushed after changes have been made to products, categories, and cms pages. This is inefficient because changing one product can invalidate the entire cache. We support auto-tagging and auto-flushing, so that whole cache flushes rarely ever need to be done. After you edit a product all pages associated with that product will be flushed and the others will be unaffected.±
  • Flush a specific store and not other stores New!
    Sometimes you may make a global change to a store such as changing a template file that needs a full flush. We let you flush just that store so other stores will not need to be unnecessarily flushed.±
  • Always be in the know
    Never wonder what is being cached and what is not. You may choose to have headers outputted on every request or a footer widget outputted that details whether that page is full page cached, what cache level (1 or 2) is being used, and the expiration of that full page cache. In addition, you may choose to have all hole punched (non-cached) data on a page to be outlined in red, so you know if hole punching is working according to your expectations.
  • Support for SSL / Secure Sites New!
    Google currently gives a slight boost for catalogs that are served over HTTPS. This configuration is fully supported by the Page Cache Magento Extension.
  • Configure with ease
    Almost everything can be configured via the graphical interface. Disqualify pages, add block disqualifies, include pages in the cache, and more is all done during the configuration screen (check out the demo). Most installations will never have to do anything more than enabling the cache. Everything else (hole punching, disqualifying, etc) will be done automatically!
  • Support for store / currency auto-switching
    Easily support currency / store auto-switching with our Store / Currency Switcher extension.
  • Support for CDN / content deliver networks
    Our page cache will work with content delivery networks without any issue.
  • Search engines do not use sessions for even faster loading New!
    Search engines do not use sessions in the primary cache so that the requests will be even faster to boost your page scores.
  • 100% compatible with Magento 1.8+ form keys
    There is no need to sacrifice security when using the page cache. Our cache is 100% compatible with Magento form keys.
  • Correctly record product views
    Many caches will distort your product view log which can affect statistics. We fully support the recording of product views even for cached pages.
  • Support for nginx, apache, litespeed, etc
    Our technology is Web server nuetral, so it does not need or depend on a specific Web server technology. You may run nginx, apache, litespeed, or another Web server technology if you wish.
  • Supports compression to maximize storage space
  • Cache works even for logged in users and dynamic content±
  • More, more, and more
    There are too many features to explain. Please try the demo so you can get a feel for the quality of the extension and see the configuration screen. You will not be able to see the real performance results on the demo server. Please buy the extension and run benchmarks in a controlled environment against other solutions. We have a 30 day money back guarantee.
