Pretty big move by Pantheon. A global CDN and automated HTTPS is pretty awesome for any WordPress website worth its salt.
Pantheon sites are now faster and more secure than ever, thanks to our new, integrated Global CDN. The Content Delivery Network, along with automated HTTPS, is included for all sites, regardless of service level and at no extra cost. We did it by integrating Fastly’s edge cloud platform seamlessly into Pantheon and configured it for advanced caching, optimized for Drupal and WordPress. Next, we added Let’s Encrypt to the mix. The result frees you up from CDN configuration or hassling with manually obtaining or renewing certificates for HTTPS. As an added bonus, we’ve improved the go live experience, complete with a new Launch Essentials guide, so it’s easier than ever to take a site live on the platform. If you’ve got an existing Pantheon site and don’t see action required to update your DNS, just open a support chat and you’ll be on your way to a faster and more secure site.
Beat the Speed of Light
Gone down the rabbit hole to optimize your site’s page load time? Seeker of the holy grail of sub-second page loads? Then you know that no matter what you do at the site level, without a CDN, the speed of light is working against you.
Good timing for the article. Enterprise use of WordPress is coming up frequently in my world recently.
WordPress is becoming the CMS of choice for more and more of the enterprise and big publishing sectors. Over the 5+ years that we’ve been solely focused on delivering WordPress at scale in those markets we’ve seen the conversation change significantly. People came to WordPress for its speed of deployment and publishing experience, they’ve stayed because of its unparalleled focus on backwards compatibility, the robust security of the core CMS, and its proven flexibility to meet the diverse requirements of some of the world’s largest enterprises.
Pantheon survey showing remarkable adoption of WordPress among enterprise sites.
WordPress recently reached the massive milestone of powering 25% of the web. We’ve seen WordPress grow massively in popularity, and all signs point to its continued success. While we know much of this growth by volume comes from blogs, we also know many high profile sites run on WordPress. But how popular is WordPress in the enterprise? What kinds of sites are running on WordPress? To explore these questions, we surveyed thousands of agencies in our partner network about how their WordPress work has changed over the past few years, as well as how they think their WordPress work will continue to evolve.
We found some interesting trends indicating bigger, more important sites are being powered by WordPress, and that WordPress isn’t just gaining popularity among blogs, but is making strides in the enterprise as well.
Some of the themes we saw:
