Let’s start 2017 with some more fastness juice flowing. HTTP/2 is now supported on all public Platform.sh regions.
What do you need to do to benefit from the incredible performance gains this will give your site?
Nothing. It just works (as long as you have HTTPS enabled, which you should anyway).
What is HTTP/2 ?
Basically it makes any site load faster. Much faster. To see a cute demo of the speed difference, just visit https://www.httpvshttps.com/.
As I said, you don’t need to do anything to benefit from it, it is already active for all clients. But you can play around with specific HTTP/2 features with your preferred framework (look for example at https://www.drupal.org/project/http2_server_push for Drupal Assets Preloading).
Enjoy! 2017 is going to be so fast.
