Harder Better Faster: Blazing fast small sites

How can you make a one-node site work harder, better, stronger if you can only find performance optimisations applied to larger Drupal installations? 

Even smaller Drupal installations can benefit from ideas and techniques normally only applied on large-scale projects. While some of these are simply unavailable, many of them are both easy to implement and give a serious boost to your sites. 

Based on a live demo we will show you tips & tricks to speed up a smaller drupal installation. While revealing secrets about Varnish, Boost, Nginx, iops, CPU cycles, opscode caching and New Relic, you will learn which impact each change makes.  Your sites will get snappy and ready to scale out if needed, so you won’t have to worry about delivering content fluently to a big amount of visitors.
