Enterprise plugin for Redis object caching, Object Cache Pro, and Nexcess, a supplier of managed hosting and cloud solutions tailored for managed WordPress, WooCommerce, and Magento, have signed a partnership. The premium plugin, which has a monthly cost of $95 per month, will come free with Nexcess’s Managed WordPress, Managed WooCommerce, dedicated WordPress clusters, and flexible cloud plans.
One strategy website owners may use to decrease latency and boost page performance is content caching. Carts and forms are examples of dynamic material that cannot be cached in the same way that blogs and other static content can. These traditional solutions would simply not address the needs of high traffic websites with a large number of items. Utilizing lossless compression techniques, Object Cache Pro would improve speed for users by sending queries more quickly without slowing down the database.
Object Cache Pro will be installed on all new Nexcess sites with a valid plan and available for existing customers to activate.
“Every site and store owner are looking to improve speed and performance, especially when their livelihood depends on their site performing well,” said Carrie Wheeler, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer at Nexcess. “Object Cache Pro is a premium caching plugin that eases the load on customer databases and server hardware to deliver queries faster and thus, speed up application performance. And because we know it is so important to help our WordPress customers run faster, more performant sites, we’re building it into our plans – for free.”
“We’re all about reliability and performance, so partnering with the like-minded team at Nexcess was a natural fit,” said Till Krüss, the developer of Object Cache Pro. “We love seeing them push Object Cache Pro to its edge.”
WordPress for SMBs
There have been more features introduced to Nexcess’s Managed WordPress and WooCommerce plans and Object Cache Pro is the newest addition. Other recently added features include the following:
- Plugin Performance Monitor offers prescriptive and actionable information to enhance site performance
- WooCommerce Automated Testing executes tests every night and quickly updates the status of critical tests
- Sales Performance Monitor’s intelligence engine notifies store owners if sales are slowing down and gives crucial insights into online business income and sales patterns
“We’re thrilled to partner with high-quality solutions like Object Cache Pro to enable better performance and profitability for our customers,” added Carrie Wheeler. “Our mission is to make WordPress easier for SMBs and their creators and part of that is taking performance concerns off the table. It’s a great example of how we’re using our expertise to drive continuous innovation for WordPress and WooCommerce so that Nexcess is the best place for SMBs and creators to build, manage, and grow their sites and stores online.”
