LiteMage2 for Magento 2

Magento 2 is a new design using browser cache for private data.

Hole Punching

LiteMage Cache uses Edge Side Includes (ESI) to punch holes in pages where information changes from visitor to visitor.


We offer flexible pricing of LiteMage so you can choose the best fit for your needs.


  • Edge Side Includes (ESI) engine for hole punching.

  • Configurable punched holes mapped to blocks defined in the Magento page layout.

  • Main page and public blocks are cached once and served to all users. Private blocks are cached per-user and served only to that user.

  • Retrieve multiple blocks per request, minimizing the overhead of building multi-block pages.

  • Support for Last Viewed Product (this can be turned off for even faster speeds), Product Comparison, Stock Tracking and other features requiring communication with the Magento backend.

  • Support for layered navigation, category filtering, product toolbar options (view as, sort by and show per page) functionality.

  • Support for multi-store, multi-currency, and multi-user groups.

  • Support for extensions using AJAX based cart.

  • Built-in crawler far cache warmup.


How Does LiteMage Cache Compare to Other Page Caching Solutions?

  • Varnish-based solutions

    (Turpentine, etc.)

    • Complicated to set up.
    • Requests dynamic blocks individually, multiplying the high cost of Magento framework initialization. Can make a cached page even slower than an uncached page.
    • No SSL support. Frontend proxy server required to support HTTPS, adding even more layers.
    • Uses AJAX, which lowers overall server performance.
  • PHP-based solutions

    (Full Page Cache)

    • Content is cached by PHP, so all pages are still generated dynamically by PHP. PHP is a heavy language and overall scalability is thus limited by PHP scalability.
    • Reliance on PHP causes generally slower page load times.
    • Limits in PHP scalability make PHP solutions vulnerable to DDoS attacks.
  • Solution for Magento

    (Litemage Cache)

    • All content can be assembled from cache, even per-user, private blocks, for best performance.
    • Multiple blocks are called for in a single request, lowering overhead.
    • Native SSL support.
    • Supremely scalable — handles 10,000's of connections without missing a beat.
    • Built-in extra anti-DDoS features protect you from attacks.
    • Suitable for Shared Hosting and clustered environments.

Magento Case Studies

  • LiteMage Cache Drastically Improves Page Load Times

    With the same configuration and LiteMage active, the average response time dropped to an incredible 0.12 seconds with the shortest transaction coming in at 0.06 seconds and the longest at 5.26 seconds (likely a page that was not cacheable). That is a 93.5% reduction in response time, over 15x's faster than before!
