Case Study – Magento Community 32 Hosting Platform – Growershouse.com

Growers House is a family owned and operated hydroponics supply and indoor gardening center.  They have both a retail and online store based out of Tucson, AZ to service customers locally and globally.  It is their belief that old business practices are becoming a scarce commodity today.  Their goal is to provide customers a large selection, wholesale pricing, expert advice, comparison tests, and most importantly, customer service.  Growers House got in touch with us to help design and manage their Magento Hosting Platform because their current web pages took a long time to load.   The current Magento eCommerce platform that was used by GrowersHouse was not designed to accommodate the rapidly growing amount of traffic and the challenge was to provide an environment that could easily sustain 250 active clients without affecting performance.

After testing various pages we quickly discovered that the average time to first byte clocked in at 11.339 seconds and complete page load times ranged from 5 to 59 seconds.


After Moving To The Community 32 Dedicated Platform with JetRails(TM), page load times and time to first byte are faster than ever.  Rather than spending time taking phone calls about the site not working, GrowersHouse is now doing what they do best; taking care of customers.

Test 1 Test 2 Test 3 Test 4 Test 5 Average Results
First Byte 0.329 0.323 0.313 0.309 0.305 0.315
Load Time 2.925 2.560 3.030 2.999 3.194 2.941
Fully Loaded Time 3.185 2.966 3.486 2.043 3.431 3.022


Growershouse.com can now handle 250 active clients without compromising site performance with the Community 32 Dedicated Platform with JetRails(TM) Pro.
