Besides being powered by more powerful server hardware, also delivering faster response times to Phoronix and is thanks to MariaDB.

With the latest major server work, MariaDB was called into play over MySQL, previously using MySQL 5.5 on EL6. While I don't have any hard data to share today, the database performance is significantly better over the older MySQL 5, even when factoring in hardware differences.

Overall, I'm very happy thus far with the new server performance and it will continue to be tuned in the days ahead. The greater performance of MariaDB and the new hardware will also allow for search and other features to be restored in the days ahead.

There's a lot of good additions I have planned for Phoronix Media further into 2015!
