Performance & Security
Now more than every security matters. In November 2017 an unnamed Google algorithm update was released which caused SEO professionals around the world to FREAK! Traffic to some websites dropped by nearly 50%!! Yet, nothing really changed. Or, did it? Time not only heals all wounds but it can also create them. When the underlying technology that is the Internet does not stay current and progress your page rank and thus the traffic to your website suffers.
On 30 November 2017, the PHP community announced the release of PHP 7.2. More specifically, this is the second feature update to the PHP 7 series. While Drupal 7 does not include support for PHP 7.2 it does support PHP 7.1 which is 250% faster than PHP 5.6. Intrepid Network has been quietly updating select websites from Drupal 7 to Drupal 8 and we've been updating select Drupal 7 websites from PHP 5.6 to PHP 7.1. Performance tests confirm reporting claims and version 7.1 is indeed much much faster.
As we continue these technology updates in an effort to improve performance of our client's websites we are being diligent in testing. Not every Drupal 7 website needs to be migrated to Drupal 8 and not every website can be built on Drupal 8. Migrations and updates take into account each clients unique budget and measures their ROI. We don't sell it unless you need it or demand it. That all being said Drupal 8 which is incredibly faster than Drupal 7. And, Drupal 8 supports PHP 7.2. We provide each option and depending on your specific needs we have your solution.
