About We-Amp B.V.
Founded in The Netherlands in 2013 by Otto van der Schaaf and Kees Spoelstra, We-Amp offers web performance optimization tools & consultancy and web server customizations & tuning to organizations worldwide. Our organization actively contributes to the open source community and delivers commercial-grade support on projects it's involved in.
Website performance optimization
Faster websites offer a better user experience, boost rankings in Google and increase conversion rates. Organizations big or small can profit from our extensive knowledge and experience. We offer a wide range of (free) webserver modules for output optimization, compression and caching, WPO consultancy services, tooling and support. Preferably all technical optimizations are implemented by your own employees or technical partners, but when needed we are happy to supply a team of developers to get the job done.
Web server tuning
Web server tuning is both art and science. Better web server performance lowers hardware investments and improves user experience. Our skilled technicians know how to configure all major web servers to fit your specific needs and make sure you get the most out of your web server. If applicable, your employees or technical partners get detailed instructions for optimizations on their end.
Web server customizations
When it comes to web server customizations the possibilities are endless. We-Amp delivers (tailor-made) plugins for all major web and proxy servers, adding functionality like extended security & authentication features, optimizing video streams, intelligent output caching and advanced content transformations, custom protocols and protocol extensions.
Commercial-grade support on open-source projects
Need commercial grade support on Google PageSpeed, Apache Traffic Server (ATS) or NGINX? As active contributors we are happy to help!
Proud members of Google’s PageSpeed team
Alongside Google’s own engineers, We-Amp technicians work on the Google PageSpeed project dedicated to make the web faster. Google PageSpeed consists of numerous tools to analyze and (automatically) optimize webpages. We-Amp uses its in-depth knowledge of webserver technologies and performance optimization to help Google bringing its PageSpeed platform to IIS, NGINX and ATS, as well as working directly on the core services of PageSpeed.
Apache Traffic Server contributions
We-Amp employees act as committers and contributors on the open source Apache Traffic Server (ATS) project. Apache Traffic Server is a fast, scalable and extensible caching proxy server. It scales well on modern SMP hardware, handling 10s of thousands of requests per second. Our work on ATS includes development of modules for gzip compression and Google PageSpeed optimization.
