If you notice any difference in graphics below, comment.
The image above is the same as the image below. The difference is the location of the graphic file. The file above is hosted on Amazon S3 and the graphic below is hosted in my blog’s hosting account in the WordPress media library. Lets see how they load.
This little experiment is my first in testing the speed and performance of various graphic hosting options. I expect to discover something but at this point I’m not sure what it will be. Larger files, like video, are probably much more likely to produce noticeable results.
As I play with different options I will be using what I learn to help in my ‘real’ sites and sharing with others in the WordPress training and meetups I enjoy. If you have an idea or tip, or even a question, please use the comments below.
Also, the graphic here is part of a piece I’m working on about WordPress backups that I’m going to be publishing in another blog I’m building. More on that soon.
Well why not try another, since I’m at it – this image looks the same but is in 2 different versions. The second is more compressed and is one half the size as the first. The second is also hosted off-site at Amazon. See if theres a difference is load speed or anything else.
so here’s another version, a smaller one, coming from a far away place [Amazon S3]
