Praise for High Performance Drupal

“Tag1 has been my go-to partner for performance and scalability for the last decade. This book, based on their experience scaling the largest (Drupal) sites on the Internet, is a must-read for any Drupal developer or system administrator.”

Michael Meyers Vice President, Large Scale Drupal at Acquia

“An exhaustive, baremetal-to-browser treatment of both the factors governing Drupal performance, and the tools for working in each layer.”

Sam Boyer Manager, Enterprise Architecture at NBCUniversal

“It’s been wonderful to work with the brilliant minds at Tag1 Consulting (Jeff, Narayan, Nat and others) on a number of enterprise-class Drupal projects. I’m always blown away by the depth of their knowledge and how they’re able to apply what they know to troubleshoot performance bottlenecks.

This book is a wonderful window into this team’s collective experience and skills. Anyone who’s serious about Drupal will have this book on their “must have” list of Drupal references."

Kevin Millecam Partner, WebWise Solutions

“Jeff and Narayan have always amazed me with their knowledge and experience with high performance hosting, especially with regards to Drupal. From their experience at the OSU Open Source Lab working on Drupal.org to working at Tag1 they are very much my go to resource for high performance knowledge.”

Lance Albertson Director, Oregon State University, Open Source Lab

“I first worked with the authors of this book in 2007 to dig Drupal.org out of its downtime woes and, later, on some of Drupal’s largest commercial projects. Their prolific contributions to infrastructure designs have shaped the industry standard.

Until today, I’ve declined to recommend any Drupal performance books that I’ve reviewed. I’m proud to say this book has changed my mind. I’ll be ordering copies for my co-workers and colleagues as soon as it’s released."

David Strauss CTO and Cofounder, Pantheon Systems

“Narayan, Nat and Jeff bring together an understanding of Drupal that extends far inside and outside of Drupal. High Performance Drupal provides concrete examples for building highly scalable Drupal websites."

Rudy Grigar Sr. Systems Architect, OSU Open Source Lab

“Does Drupal scale? This book answers that with a resounding yes!”

Dave O’Donovan Director Technology at archetypes.com

“Authored by some of the Drupal community’s most knowledgeable experts, High Performance Drupal is bound to become your most valued resource. With this book as a guide, you’ll be able to create systems and processes that make running your site more efficient and maximize your site’s potential.”
