Screaming Fast WordPress Sites with Redis and Vultr

In this talk, the accomplishments of which have been summarized on a Hack Noon article, I discuss how to I used a $5/mo Vultr box fitted with Redis cache and Fetch Inject to scale a single instance up to 7000 concurrent users.

This work has spun off into The Hyperdrive plugin for WordPress.

View the modified functions.php I used to implement Fetch Injection into the Twenty Seventeen theme for this talk. No plugins were used for this testing. See the Hacker Noon article linked above for access to raw metrics and data captured.
