Media Temple Accelerates Website Hosting

Los Angeles-based web hosting and cloud services firm Media Temple says it has upgraded its web hosting services, to make websites run up to six times faster. The company, which is led by Demian Sellfors, said the accelerated performance comes from such upgrades as addition of Google PageSpeed, PHP FastCGI, and use of solid state disk drives on the company's shared database server. Media Temple said the company's GRID service was originally launched back in 2006.
