The article I read focuses on some of the most important aspects of database “such as content
management, customer relations, accounts and invoicing, and events”, but mainly it focuses on
blog and an e-commerce websites. It describes some Important but simple ways to speeds up a website
by improving database. It also talks about how websites would be able to load Quicker by “minimizing
their information in database and use PHP or ASP languages to extract it, then turned into HTML
and send it to the web browser. This article describes how improving a database can make a website
load quicker. One of the website that is mentioned in this article called “WebPagetest”, is used to check
webpages speed and see how long it will take to load.
This article relates to class because it shows us different methods to modify database
in order to make websites load quicker on the server. I personally like this article because
it describe some of the important criteria of database and SQL. I learned a lot from this article and some of the stuff which I did not know about. Before reading this article, I did not know how database can actually slow down a website if a data is not formed properly. This articles is truly my favorite.
