How Fujitsu Racing is super-charging its OpenCms performance

Track: Showcase
Speaker: Dammian Miller (Melbourne Business Online)


This session presented the public, open-source (LGPL) release of the OpenCms HighPerf module (7.x.x compatible) and a case study of its impact on performance.

After implementing the 2008 edition of the Australian V8 SuperCars Fujitsu Racing team website, we encountered a recurring problem with any CMS-based website – poor performance. 

To mitigate this inherent issue the OpenCms HighPerf module was developed to provide the best of both worlds – highly dynamic content and high-performance.  It works in combination with URL re-writing to enable OpenCms to partner closely with transparent HTTP caches, in this case, the open source Varnish. The result is up-to-date dynamic content delivered at performance levels orders of magnitude greater than using vanilla OpenCms.

In his session Dammian showed how this simple module can super-charge your OpenCms!
