Scalability and Resource Efficiency of an HTML Drag & Drop Website Builder with CPU Optimization

Client Overview

The client is a leading HTML drag & drop website builder, offering an intuitive platform for users to create stunning websites without the need for coding skills. With a growing user base, the client faced challenges related to resource limitations as their platform expanded in popularity.

Client Challenge

As the user base of the HTML drag & drop website builder continued to grow, the platform encountered increasing strain on its resources, including storage, CPU, and memory. This surge in resource consumption led to performance degradation and raised concerns about the platform’s ability to scale effectively to meet user demands.


Gart Solutions, a trusted DevOps and SRE services firm, was engaged to address the resource limitations faced by the HTML drag & drop website builder. Their approach involved the following steps:

Infrastructure Optimization

Gart reviewed builder’s existing infrastructure (servers, storage, network) and identified opportunities for optimization. This included:

  • Right-sizing resources: Analyzing usage patterns and scaling up specific resources (e.g., CPU, RAM) to meet peak demand without overprovisioning.
  • Containerization: Utilizing containerization technologies (Docker) to isolate applications and improve resource utilization.
  • Auto-scaling: Implementing auto-scaling to automatically adjust resources based on real-time demand, ensuring efficient resource allocation.

Storage Optimization

Gart evaluated HTML website builder’s storage solution and proposed improvements:

  • Tiered storage: Implementing a tiered storage system, utilizing less expensive storage options for less frequently accessed data and high-performance storage for frequently accessed data.
  • Data compression: Compressing static assets (images, scripts) to reduce storage footprint.

Monitoring and Alerting

Gart implemented a robust monitoring and alerting system to proactively identify potential resource-related issues:

  • Real-time monitoring: Continuously monitoring resource utilization metrics (CPU, memory, storage) to identify anomalies.
  • Alerting system: Setting up alerts to notify the team of potential issues before they impact performance.

Performance Optimization

Gart collaborated with website builder’s development team to optimize the platform’s code:

  • Performance profiling: Identifying and addressing code bottlenecks that contribute to inefficient resource usage.
  • Caching: Implementing caching mechanisms to reduce database load and improve website responsiveness.

Scalability Strategies

Gart Solutions devised strategies to improve the platform’s scalability and resource management. This involved implementing auto-scaling mechanisms to dynamically adjust resource allocation based on demand, ensuring optimal performance during peak usage periods.


Through Gart Solutions’ expertise and strategic interventions, the HTML drag & drop website builder successfully addressed its resource limitations and optimized its infrastructure for enhanced performance and scalability. The key outcomes included:

  • Significant reduction in resource consumption: By implementing efficient resource management strategies, the client achieved notable reductions in storage, CPU, and memory usage, resulting in improved cost-effectiveness and scalability.
  • Enhanced user experience: The optimized platform delivered faster load times and smoother navigation, enhancing the overall user experience and satisfaction.
  • Improved scalability and flexibility: With the implementation of auto-scaling mechanisms and containerization, the website builder gained the ability to scale resources dynamically to meet growing user demands, ensuring uninterrupted service delivery.
  • Proactive monitoring and maintenance: The implementation of robust monitoring and optimization practices allowed the client to identify and address performance issues proactively, minimizing downtime and ensuring reliable service delivery.


By partnering with Gart Solutions, HTML drag & drop website builder successfully addressed their resource limitations and optimized their infrastructure. This collaboration not only improved platform performance and scalability but also enabled them to handle anticipated future growth and provide a superior user experience. This case study demonstrates the value of collaboration between web platforms and DevOps/SRE experts in addressing resource constraints and ensuring long-term success.
