How much of an effect on website response times if I deploy the content across multiple servers?
pwarren 2 years ago
I've had a few people complaining about my website taking a long time to load, but the design is solid and follows most if not all design best practices. I've asked a couple of my acquaintances to test it out and see if they had problems, and the results surprised me. Most of them reported that they found everything acceptable, but the two that did say they thought it took a little too long to load were located in the same state across the country from where I and the other guinea pigs are. This indicates to me that there is enough impact from the location of the server to be noticeable to those located a few thousand miles away. Have you noticed much of a difference from utilizing multiple, geographically diverse servers?
