GEMServers Selects DeepSQL to Deliver Hosted WordPress Sites at Breakthrough Speed on Google Cloud Platform

World’s only adaptive database engine accelerates MySQL, delivering 200% faster page loads and 39 times faster transactions, while minimizing bandwidth, storage and Google-related costs

BOSTON--()--Deep Information Sciences, the company that reimagined MySQL for the on-demand economy, today announced that GEMServers is using DeepSQL™ to fuel its new, ultra-high performance WordPress managed hosting business. DeepSQL, the world’s only self-tuning database engine, enables GEMServers to deliver page loads that are 200% faster and transactions that are 39 times faster than WordPress hosters who use MySQL’s default InnoDB Engine. GEMServers also cuts bandwidth requirements and database size significantly, making scaling easy and eliminating the need to charge customers such as ImpaqCorp, Tydan, and GWI Telecom, an additional 12% to 20% to compensate for Google Cloud Platform-related costs.

“The hosting industry is all about speed, scale and efficiency, but the MySQL database underlying platforms like WordPress and Drupal is adding complexity and slowing performance to levels that are risky to business. Tuning the application only goes so far and MySQL wasn’t well understood as a major component of performance, until now. No one understands this better than GEMServers,” said Les Yetton, CEO of Deep Information Sciences. “We’re thrilled that such a forward-looking hoster is using DeepSQL to fuel its customers’ sites and drive the kind of performance and efficiencies that make it stand out in a crowded marketplace.”

“There’s a huge gap between what ecommerce businesses need and what their WordPress hosters have been delivering. They’re constantly losing money because web pages load so slow that visitors abandon their sites before buying anything. We saw an opportunity to fill this gap with a high-performance WordPress hosting business, but needed a way to drive that superior speed. DeepSQL supercharges our hosting and makes it infinitely better than our competitors,” said John Teague, Founder of GEMServers, a just-launched, fully managed WordPress hosting business. “DeepSQL gives us the NoSQL big data performance everyone is dying for, while delivering efficiencies that would impossible without it. With its auto-tuning, incredible page load speed and bandwidth reductions, DeepSQL is the ultimate game-changer. There’s nothing like it.”

DeepSQL is the world’s only adaptive database engine. It transforms MySQL into a perpetually self-tuning, massively scalable and highly performant database, across cloud, virtual and physical environments. Leveraging fundamentally new computer science and machine learning, and using the MySQL interface businesses know, DeepSQL delivers unprecedented speed and flexibility and scales to hundreds of billions of rows, without requiring application changes. The result is an adaptive MySQL that tunes to meet the demands of the application, enabling far greater performance without trial and error or even needing a DBA.

DeepSQL enables GEMServers to:

  • Accelerate page loads by 200%
    DeepSQL speeds page loads by as much as 200% or more under normal circumstances. Under Black Friday-like conditions, on e-commerce product list and other large, image-intensive pages, page loading was consistently under 1.5 seconds—far less than an average five seconds or higher without DeepSQL.
  • Process transactions 39 times faster than with InnoDB
    DeepSQL outperformed InnoDB in a battery of high-load tests. In a dbt2 test, DeepSQL processed 3308 transactions/second, compared to InnoDB’s 1621 transactions/second. In sysbench, DeepSQL was 24 times faster. And in GEMServers’ custom WordPress e-commerce and publishing transaction sets, DeepSQL was 39.7 times faster. “Any way you slice it, DeepSQL blows InnoDB away,” said Teague.
  • Ease scalability while cutting bandwidth by 32% and database size up to 80%
    Thanks to dramatic bandwidth reductions and compression rates, GEMServers can provide true scalability for even the most intensive publishing and e-commerce businesses, without having to pass along high costs to its customers.
  • Pass Google-related cost savings onto customers
    According to Teague, “Without DeepSQL, GEMServers would be forced to compensate for the loss of performance by adding more, and more resource-intensive, Google Compute Engine machines. Not only would that significantly increase our Google Cloud Platform costs, but also our internal labor costs for monitoring, tuning and maintaining the VMs.” GEMServers estimates that DeepSQL saves them 12% - 20% in hosting package costs, which would otherwise get passed on to their customers.
  • Eliminate manual tuning, boost personnel ROI
    Because DeepSQL auto-tunes to optimize performance as resources and loads change, GEMServers doesn’t have to do the manual tuning that typically eats up hosters’ time. This frees GEMServers employees to concentrate on more strategic parts of its hosting operations.
