We arrived Sunday night at the luxurious Wynn Hotel in Las Vegas where the conference was being held. The following afternoon the floor opened.
From then until the end of the conference, we received a steady amount of attention both about our products and our demo – a performance comparison of Nginx + Varnish and LiteSpeed Web Server + LiteMage on both Magento 1.9 and Magento 2.0 using LoadRunner and Siege. Over the course of the conference, we discussed our plans for LiteMage with many potential clients as well as a few of our existing partners.
On Tuesday, George (Company President and Lead Developer) and Steve (VP of Business Development) held two breakout sessions to discuss the problems facing Magento store owners and LiteMage, our unique solution to increase store performance by 2-10x at a fraction of the price.
These talks led to our booth receiving a lot more attention, but it wasn’t all work. We ended Tuesday night at the Legendary Imagine Evening Event.
Decked out in our new Imagine 2016 exclusive LiteSpeed T-shirts, we returned to our booth for the last time on Wednesday to close out the conference.
We realized after talking to LiteSpeed customers at Imagine, that our LiteMage pricing needed to be flexible and include an entry point for customers with small stores. Now every store, regardless of revenues or scale, can see 2-10x performance gains by switching to the LiteSpeed platform.
We also announced our intention to develop LiteMage Cloud, a way to deploy LiteMage on your existing Magento server with any hosting provider and any server software (including Apache and NGINX) via the cloud. With LiteMage Cloud you can improve your store’s performance regardless of your current web server.
Magento Imagine 2016 was a great experience and we are looking forward to doing it again next year.
