Pagoda Box sets a new standard for scalable Magento hosting with the latest ecommerce benchmarks. Performance results for a lightly optimized Magento install at various traffic levels are as follows:
995,000 Requests per Day = $ 89 mo
1,745,000 Requests per Day = $ 114 mo
2,350,000 Requests per Day = $ 139 mo
2,935,000 Requests per Day = $ 165 mo
3,240,000 Requests per Day = $ 190 mo

Magento is one of the fastest growing ecommerce platforms, providing flexibility and low initial cost. However, scaling Magento usually requires complex server configurations and extensive resources, especially during traffic fluctuations. Pagoda Box’s latest published benchmarks provide a baseline reference for developers who need to deploy a Magento install that grows with traffic.
For example, one recent Magento Wordpress case study - nitrocircus.com - has 3.7 million Facebook fans, and 72,000 followers on Twitter. Announcing events like their 3-D movie can easily double or triple visitor traffic. Pagoda Box provides Nitro Circus flexible php hosting to match server resources with traffic needs.
