Excellent post! Most of the caching we have set has been around data, rather than images. WE found that nested repeaters benefit tremendously from caching, as well as delayed loading. Great tips on the images and multi-language aspect!


Mark Schmidt

Agreed. Excellent Post. Thanks for the thoroughness.

Thanks Bryan and Mark! There are some exciting new changes in 5.5 R2 with IIS7 that could also have an impact on performance so I am going to be checking those out and will let everyone know the results.

Non performance related comment.

One other reason for us to store images (and documents) in the CMS tree is security. In the CMS tree you can define permissions on "image/document folders" in such a way that certain images/documents can only be accessed by certain users. As far as I know this cannot be done within media libraries.

Matt Mathias

Andre' Your completely right. I touched on that in my post, but one of the reasons for using the CMS tree is security; you can restrict media libraries by permissions but only if you use "Permenant URLs" which in effect works the same way as the CMS Tree

There's a theory about a type of memory called flashbulb moments. Essentially, it's that certain moments, in a cultural spectrum, create such a shock that people will continue to remember where they were and what they were doing when that particular moment happened.

Great post on this blog! If you need to use either of these features in your implementation then I recommend only storing the files where you need to use features in the CMS tree and using the file system or media libraries for the bulk of the files.

Does it also allow you to edit configuration files like .htaccess or robot.txt? I love configuring the setting of my website so this will be a big issue for me.

This looks like a promising solution. How will people with average coding skills fare using this method?

This method provides the highest level of flexibility for content editors (let's face it images are frequently part of the content of a site). This also allows for the easiest transition between multiple cultures since the files would be considered a document and thus have a different(or the same) version for each culture.

Each and every option above affects how long it takes an image to be sent to the client browser, and thus how performant your site feels to and end user. I set out to compare these methods side by side to determine which approach offers the best performance. It is worth noting that each approach has positives and negatives that go beyond just performance and it is important to understand these before choosing the approach that works best for you.
