High Performance Drupal is an essential, comprehensive guide to designing Drupal’s supporting infrastructure and scalability, as well as a handbook for improving Drupal website performance. Drupal beginners will quickly learn a set of best practices in how to deploy a growable site which will withstand traffic surges. Intermediate and expert users will find this book to be the ultimate go-to reference source during initial planning for a site deployment or when implementing specific technologies such as Varnish, memcache, or Solr. The book will focus on Drupal versions 7 and 8, with Drupal 8 planning to be released in late 2013.
