BARCELONA, SPAIN--(Marketwired - August 25, 2016) - Cloudways, a leading Managed Cloud Hosting provider of premium PHP based application hosting services, announces inclusion of PHP-FPM in its hosting recipe. This makes PHP-FPM hosting available on the cloud platform as default for all new servers. Existing servers can activate this PHP processor from the platform in a few clicks.
The inclusion of PHP-FPM comes as a replacement of mod_php processor within ThunderStack. When tested in controlled environment using WordPress web app, the new PHP-FPM powered ThunderStack outperformed the previous mod_php-powered version by 300%.
"Many modern PHP apps cannot operate on mod_php. This is why we have replaced it with PHP-FPM. When it comes to comparison between mod_php and PHP-FPM, the latter was found to be more efficient in all areas of performance and stability," commented Pere Hospital, Co-founder and CTO of Cloudways.
PHP-FPM enhances the performance of web servers as it has the ability to handle the PHP code efficiently. With advanced process management, the processes are handled separately. This way a web app continues to perform if any of the processes fails.
After this addition, Cloudways is positioned to become a leading cloud hosting platform for development and deployment of PHP-based CMS, ecommerce stores, and web apps. The change of processors will not affect the pricing plans of Cloudways that starts from $5 per month.
