A fair share of our users are already using Xeround to power their Joomla! sites. This is hardly surprising considering Joomla!’s popularity as a CMS (Content Management System) and how simple it is to use it with Xeround’s cloud database.
Typical Joomla! installations usually start using a MySQL database that is locally installed on the same server as the application. This single-server deployment model is common for development, testing and even the early production stages of the application.
As the application gains popularity, and as content and users increase, more of the server’s resources are consumed by the application and the database. To maintain the performance of the application, decoupling of application and database tiers is oftentimes the first optimization step. After that, adding new Joomla! servers to handle the increase in the volume of traffic is an easy task. Making sure, however, that the underlying database is available at all times and is able to scale alongside the application can be anything but.
This is why Joomla! site owners are migrating their databases to Xeround’s database service. Doing so ensures that their databases are available and can scale to accommodate their applications’ needs. And the best thing is that whether you are installing a new Joomla! site or migrating an existing deployment to work with Xeround – it’s as easy as 1-2-3!
