Drupal 8 Commerce Performance Benchmarks

Performance and scale for all levels of digital commerce


Drupal Commerce is a fantastic open source ecommerce platform, but there is a common misconception that it is lacking when it comes to performance and scalability. This is not true! Drupal Commerce is extremely fast and is more than capable of scaling from small business all the way to enterprise level ecommerce. We have proof and it’s right here for you to view.

About the report

Shawn McCabe, Acro Media’s CTO, put Drupal Commerce to the test to see how it performed on a number of different AWS configurations, ranging from single server setups all the way up to multi-server configurations.

He ran simulated traffic through Drupal Commerce, mimicking actual traffic as close as possible, testing concurrent users, site speed, transactions per second, and a number of other useful technical metrics.

The smallest server configuration tested was capable of handling 130 concurrent users flawlessly, with a throughput of 13.59 transactions per second. On the other hand, the largest configuration could handle 52,000 concurrent users with a throughput of 1,305.85 transactions per second.

The report goes further and includes how the tests were set up, their limitations and methodology, all of the server configurations details and, of course, the test results. This testing puts the performance and scalability question to rest, backed by hard data that anyone can reproduce. Drupal Commerce is a viable option for ecommerce that businesses of any size can use and grow with in the future.
