We have 47 active plugins on our WordPress installation. That's a lot of plugins, many of which may slow down the performance of WordPress. We do some comprehensive speed tests before deploying plugins, or we may even use some of the logic to simply update our theme so it runs faster and is less taxing on our servers. Speed is essential nowadays – both from a user experience angle and a search engine optimization angle.
If I had any complaint about typical hosting platforms, it's that they typically don't allow you to troubleshoot and identify queries and assets and how they're impacting your content management system. Something as simple as tuning your database can cut the time it takes your pages to load by a fraction. Pantheon is changing this!
