This post is a guide to maintaining a Jekyll website on the Akamai-powered Rackspace Cloud Files CDN network. However, it may serve as a general guide for hosting any static website on the network.
Incumbant: WordPress I have used WordPress to manage my personal website for the past two years. The system performed excellently, and it consistently handled traffic spikes with quick load times.
At Rackspace I have worked on both the Cloud Files and the Cloud Block Storage systems. Sometimes people get confused between the two products, so I want to explain the differences.
Deploying your application or web site can be a difficult process. In most cases, it involves multiple complicated steps, a long documentation process and constant emails to tell your team what was deployed. It’s also a very manual process, prone to mistakes or errors. That’s why having an automated process to deploy your application is critical.
A question that we get here at Rackspace is, “How many servers do I need to handle all my holiday traffic?” It is a pretty difficult question to answer because of all of the different variables. Because of the cost-effective nature of the cloud, one answer might be to overprovision and have extra resources to make sure that you site can handle a large amount of traffic. However, there is another way that not a lot of people think about: serving your landing page off of our Content Delivery Network (CDN).
Joomla is one of the most awesome pieces of software out there, and there are four main reasons that it excites me and why I continue contributing to the Joomla community and an advocating for this CMS.
Often times Rackspace customers and potential customers ask me about the best way to stream video on their Joomla site. This depends on how many users they plan to stream the video to along with how large the file might be. These are some of the technical considerations that you need to think of before mapping out your Joomla environment.
Cloud Files now offers Access Log Delivery, a feature that allows users to enable logging for non-CDN enabled containers. As you may know, logging for CDN-enabled containers already exists today.
One of the major advantages for people to move to the cloud is cost savings; and a way to improve those savings even more is by caching your content.
In an effort to continuously enhance the scale and security of our Cloud Files and CDN products, Cloud Files will be changing the format of our CDN URLs.
