and database layer of our infrastructure. As a hardware selection for
the web layer we have decided on Dell 710 servers (Dell 710, 2x Quad
Core Xeon X5677 @ 3.47GHz, 16GB Dual Rank RDIMM 1333MHz, PERC H700/i

In terms of Operating System we agreed on 64bit
version of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6, which we have working on since it
was released. It comes with everything what we needed to run our Joomla
based website including recent technology/software: Apache 2.2.15,
MySQL 5.1.52 and PHP 5.3.2.
By upgrading hardware to a high end level we have managed to
reduce speed of homepage serving to 40ms. This impressive performance is
a result of top level hardware, well optimised Red Hat operating system
along with proper use of various caching technologies.
