Set up Magento on section.io

Magento is a popular eCommerce platform that needs extensive performance tuning.

Section.io delivers huge speed improvements to all versions of Magento through full page caching (HTML and static assets) using Varnish Cache .

Different Approaches for Different Magento Versions

For Magento 2.x, support for Varnish Cache to cache page content is integrated into Magento. section.io offers “Instant Global Cache”, an extension that will let you get setup with Varnish Cache and distribute it globally on section.io’s CDN directly from the Magento Admin portal.

For Magento 1.x, Varnish Cache support is provided by HTML Streaming, Anonymous user caching or the [free Turpentine Magento extension]
