The effect of PHP 7

We are thrilled to inform you that we gained a 50% speed increase by updating the PHP version for one of our customers. The webshop of was already fast, partially thanks to the use of the Hypernode from Byte, one of our hosting partners that are specialized in Magento hosting.

Last week we did another good improvement with positive effects on performance. With PHP version 5.5 we had an average PHP response time of 0,75 seconds. Which is good. But after updating the version to PHP7 we achieved an average PHP response time of 0,5 seconds. Awesome!
