WordPress in Kubernetes

Boost your website productivity with our WordPress-specialized cloud solution. Run your WordPress website on Kubernetes to unleash to the fullest the creative potential of the most popular content management platform. 
Why is it important?

From small blogs and local business card websites to large corporate or news websites, WordPress is widely used as both a CMS and a website builder. In particular, many e-commerce startups and online shops have their websites running on WordPress.

During the high-load sales period, such websites can experience abrupt traffic spikes due to an influx of visitors. If the underlying infrastructure is not prepared for this, the website’s systems become overwhelmed with the number of requests and it becomes unresponsive.

Another common problem with WordPress is that some of its plugins can negatively impact website speed. The plugins will block a website database, which in turn affects the processing of customer queries and website response time.

Clearly such performance issues can be very annoying to website users and have a devastating effect on business.

How we can help

If you have similar problems with your WordPress website, we know how to help! SHALB offers a cloud-based,  WordPress-optimized Kubernetes cluster on Amazon (AWS) or Google Cloud Platform (GCP).

Our engineers configure and install a highly scalable Kubernetes environment in your cloud account, and have your WordPress website running in the cluster. No more performance bottlenecks, even with the highest traffic! Autoscaling of Kubernetes will enable your website to accommodate as many visitors as needed.

An advanced observability system with monitoring graphs and data logs will help visualize any performance issues and keep an eye on workloads and security. Observability tools will also check the execution of scripts and the time it takes, helping facilitate the search for plugins that slow down your website or online store.

A configured Cloudflare service will add to your website’s security while optimizing its speed and reducing load on the backend.

Deploying WordPress on Kubernetes allows our customers to run multiple highly loaded projects, even on limited resources, and efficiently process thousands of queries every day. Sounds impossible? Contact us for more details. We’ll be delighted to share our experience and get you on board!
