Lockside has just completed a flagship project of rationalisation and cost reduction of Newbury News group’s web presence. The task involved updating and rationalising the main web site – newburytoday.co.uk, which is an exceptionally busy WordPress site that had been built some years ago and expanded to a level that required bigger and bigger servers to maintain an acceptable performance. It became clear that adding more horsepower was not the answer and in-depth performance analysis was needed. The project was completed on time and the server performance has exceeded expectations. Each of the website meets a particular need in the greater Newbury area, helping residents to find information they need and keeping in touch with daily events in this burgeoning community.
