Runners in a Race

World class performance and scalability

Building amazing web applications is no longer enough. You also need to ensure they are fast, delivered from the edge, and capable of handling extreme traffic bursts, like the Super Bowl and NBC Olympics.

Caching Made Easy

We’ve made one of the hardest problems in tech a lot easier with one of the most advanced caching systems available and ready to go out of the box.

Multiple Caching Strategies To Choose From

The pluggable caching system offers multiple strategies for caching from the traditional time-based method to more modern cache tagging and automated content triggers. Want something specific for your organization? You’ve got the power to create your own custom approach!

CDN Support With Purging

Delivering content from the edge is only helpful when it’s the most recent version. Purging rules will trigger on content updates and bubble up through all layers to ensure stale data is gone and fresh data is available automatically.

Static Site Generation

Sometimes you will want to generate static content for your application. Popular tools like Next.JS, Gatsby, and Jekyll have prebuilt integrations with Drupal and Acquia CMS. In addition, there are community solutions that can provide an even easier way to generate static content!

JS/CSS Aggregation

Optimized JavaScript and CSS aggregation is available by default, with smart chunking to ensure that each page load gets the assets it needs as cacheable and reusable files. As powerful as this is, you can also get granular control over advanced aggregation settings to really fine-tune things your way.

BigPipe

Deliver page content faster by sending cached content first and streaming the personalized content as it’s rendered later. The BigPipe technique is implemented in core and integrated with the provided caching methods. This is how applications like Facebook scale to billions of unique visitors every day. No other CMS that implements this out-of-the-box.

Authenticated User Caching

Dynamic page caching builds on the cacheability metadata in the render pipeline to cache parts of the page and personalize others. Combined with BigPipe, it is the fastest and most scalable way to deliver content to authenticated users.
