WP Engine and Box now use HHVM

Posted on November 20, 2014 by

Two big announcements back to back.

Box announced that they did their cutover to HHVM yesterday seeing their latency drop by 3x. I did a Q & A about HHVM today.

The wordpress hosting site wp-engine announced their support for HHVM today seeing a 5.6x speedup on their bbPress app, and 3.9x on their custom wordpress installs.

One of the main reasons I put so much time into HHVM is for these kinds of stories. I’m very proud of how far we’ve come and where we’re going.
