Welcome to Performance Rasta, yet another web performance and optimization blog, but with a Rasta style to it.  This blog is intended to post news, product reviews, tools, tips, benchmarks, findings, use cases, and report headaches, and make catharsis  while working on the journey of web server optimization.  Both from a hands-on, practical, day to day perspective to an academic, research perspective.

With post covering current topics such as: NoSQL (mainly Redis), LAMP (GNU/Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP), some JavaScript, and server monitoring.  And academic topics on user modeling, cloud, autonomic, green computing.

Why the name? Well it was available…  And why not, trying to bring a different perspective into the field of web server performance, not from a corporate point of view, but from the day-to-day use of new open-source technologies, with a personal touch.

The blog is maintained mainly by Nicolas Poggi, a PhD researcher in Web performance and scalability, developer, and Internet enthusiast since ’96.  Trying to help improve and foster Internet technologies to make them more reachable to users, and most importantly, efficiently to host.  You can check out my academic articles at: http://personals.ac.upc.edu/npoggi/

I will try to keeps links, quotes and books on the topics updated, comments to post, emails and posts are welcomed!
