Have you ever decided to go to a different restaurant after the host estimated a 40-minute wait for a table? If so, you’ve done exactly what web surfers do in large numbers every time they hit a slow website.
There is nothing more annoying than a site not loading when you are browsing the web. Did you know that every second delay in page load time results in a 16 percent decrease in customer satisfaction?
The world has shifted from a one-way communication, such as from media companies to its consumers, to a more two-way channel. In fact, the proliferation of social photo and video apps has made us all content creators. This presents several challenges for developers when it comes to the different kinds data that now must be stored and available for users.

The constant battle a web site administrator must fight is the resource requirements of their site in contrast with the resource requirements of the configuration it is run on. In the end, this will almost always dictate how many user requests can be handled at any point in time. A common tool in the arsenal to fight this battle is to find clever ways to off load these common, or static, requests, off the server and allow it to spend as much time as possible delivering dynamic content as quickly as it can handle. This allows a server to not handle more request than before, but leaves it free to address more than previously it would have.
