Enterprise ($500+/Month) Summary

Altis Cloud was a first time participant in the benchmarks. Altis Cloud is the enterprise hosting platform by well known WordPress consulting company HumanMade. Altis Cloud certainly stood out on the Static test in the best kind of way. Altis set a new record for the fastest average response time at 4.5ms and 11ms p95. Altis also had perfect uptime on both monitors. Altis was the second fastest average on WPT and the fastest in California and Dubai. Altis also picked up an A+ SSL test. Unfortunately, the Load Storm test was a little rocky with some odd spikes related to cache expiring issues that couldn't be fixed within the testing window. Despite the cache expiry issue Altis Cloud had the second fastest Asset response time. It was nice to see Altis finally enter the benchmarks this year and earn an Honorable Mention. It looks to be about one caching issue away from Top Tier status.


Load Storm is designed to simulate real users visiting the site, logging in and browsing. It tests uncached performance.


K6 is designed to test cached performance by repeatedly requesting the homepage.


WebPageTest fully loads the homepage and records how long it takes from 12 different locations around the world.


Uptime is monitored by two companies: HetrixTools and Uptime Robot. A self hosted monitor was also run in case there was a major discrepancy between the two third party monitors.


WPPerformanceTester performs two benchmarks. One is a WordPress (WP Bench) and the other a PHP benchmark. WP Bench measures how many WP queries per second and higher tends to be better (varies considerably by architecture). PHP Bench performs a lot of computational and some database operations which are measured in seconds to complete. Lower PHP Bench is better. WP Bench is red in the chart, PHP Bench is blue.
