Since I published the "101 ways to speed up your Magento e-commerce website" lots of people commented on

it and send me their thanks and additional tips & tricks to put in the list which was really great. Knowing that the subject appealed to many people I thought it would be nice to take a look at it from a (non technical) perspective: that of the person that talks to potential clients about Magento and their questions about it's performance. Last week started to accept guest bloggers to post on their blog. A great opportunity to share knowledge and thought about the subject so I grabbed my blog idea, started writing and I now have the honor to be the first with the post "Magento Performance: Myth vs. Reality". So go check it out! If you like it or have additional thoughts, leave a comment! Thanks go out to all that helped me with ideas and proofreading: Roy Rubin, Yoav Kutner, Mosses Akizan, Rhonda Rondeau, Wim de Nocker and Roman Zenner.
