Static asset caching is a necessity for high-performance application delivery. Because of this, the Nexcess Cloud application stack was engineered to leverage NGINX. Nginx is an open-source, high-performance HTTP server. We position NGINX in front of your application and configure it to perform short-lived caching, in-memory, of frequently used assets. This provides near-instance delivery to your end-users. When your assets need to come from disk, we serve them up on redundant arrays of Solid State Disks.
