Site Launch

This site launch marks quite a few firsts for me. Although I've worked with the technologies before, this is the first time I've launched a site running memcache, Varnish, and Apache Solr that I've set up myself. For a little bit of context, memcache and Varnish both help boost the performance of websites and web applications. Memcache caches objects in memory to reduce database load, while Varnish is a reverse-proxy HTTP accelerator that essentially caches the contents of webpages, keeping load off of the webserver (in my case, Apache) itself.
