Heavy Traffic Resolution for High School SNS Sakura Circle
Using the Ultrafast WordPress Virtual Machine KUSANAGI

TOKYO – May 12th, 2016 – Prime Strategy Co., Ltd. (hereby referred to as Prime Strategy) today announced it had installed its ultrafast WordPress execution environment KUSANAGI to the high school SNS Sakura Circle, created by Alice in Cyberland Inc. KUSANAGI is capable of an execution time of 3 milliseconds and 1000 requests per second without page caching.

Issues of Sakura Circle

The company had been operating with WordPress already, but once concurrent users reached about 100, access to the site became slow

Results of Using KUSANAGI

・Low cost high speed performance for SNS that can’t use page caching
・A start-up was given a chance to use a lower cost low spec cloud service
・Even if they create a mobile app, speeds will not suffer
・Performance was improved just from installation

Sakura Circle’s Site Framework

Sakura Circle uses nginx, HHVM, and MariaDB Galera Server. The site can use full SSL and HTTP/2, and makes use of the WordPress community plugin BuddyPress. It also uses the plugins Gianism and User Role Editor, specifically created for SNS.

Comment from Haruki Igarashi, President of Alice in Cyberland

We opted for the lowest spec rental server for Sakura Circle. But from day one, whenever our access hit 100, the site could not connect to the server, and we new we had to change servers as soon as possible. Since Sakura Circle is an SNS, page caching is not an option, so we chose to use KUSANAGI to improve speeds for free a week later. As soon as we installed it, site performance immediately improved. Our reason for using a low spec server on Sakura Cloud was costs. And now that we are developing a mobile app that is already based on WordPress, we needed an environment where the app could work at the speed it needed.
