User patience, a ticking time bomb
“There's a time bomb on the web: user patience. It starts ticking each time someone opens one of your pages. You only have a few seconds to get compelling content onto the screen. Fail, and you can kiss your customers and profits goodbye.
You can't count on fast connections either. Most of your customers are still sucking content through a fairly slow connection. You have to serve up greased lightning or they'll bail.”
Andrew B. King
We are probably not telling you anything new, but faster sites get higher conversions. This is what we do.
SandCage was initially created as an internal solution to reduce traffic waste and speed up page load times. It is now being launched publicly and is available to a select group of beta users.
While there are different methods to optimize different types of content, SandCage focuses on the processing, hosting and delivery of static content. It helps reduce development time and effort, all the while increasing the efficiency and security of your system. SandCage also helps you deliver more scalable and better performing systems.
By offloading some, or all, of your file and image processing, hosting and delivery, SandCage allows your servers and infrastructure to focus on the less resource-intensive tasks of processing and delivering the more lightweight, dynamic assets.
Sounds awesome, right? It is!
If you’re just as much of a fanatic as we are when it comes to traffic waste reduction and infrastructure health, join us for a free trial program until the 1st of June 2016. During this period we will be offering our RESTful API to a select group of beta users.
Hope to have you on board soon!
