** PLEASE ANSWER THE FOLLOWING QUESTIONS WHEN APPLYING **
- When can you start?
- Approximately how long will it take to complete the job?
- What load time on my first attempt do you think is realistic?
-My site is at dev1.giftsnthings.com
I have an Amazon EC2 medium instance server that needs someone who knows how to follow this http://www.mgt-commerce.com/blog/magento-on-steroids-best-practice-for-highest-performance/ guide to performance tune my Magento sites.
I would also like a cache system installed like Varnish Cache https://www.varnish-cache.org/ If you have experience with another caching tool please let me know.
NOTE: We already have compilation enabled and Magento caching turned on. You may need to turn these off to make any changes.
If you are an expert in performance tuning Magento and have recommendations that will increase my performances please share your thoughts. We are open to suggestions
