simonbaese - blog: Performance improvements for an enterprise Drupal website

Image removed.

Recently, we worked on performance improvements for a complex enterprise-scale Drupal system. Performance bottlenecks can appear in many different parts of such systems. Many possible performance improvements merit their respective discussion - each with a high level of detail. In this blog post, we want to share what we have learned from a more distant perspective. For some improvements, the Drupal ecosystem already offers well-working solutions in core and the contribution space. Some other changes sound easy on paper, but the implementation requires much effort. That is why we need to zoom out more to make good decisions on the software architecture level. Here are some of the noteworthy changes and decisions we made.
