Is Jetpack Bloated? More Data that Debunks the Myth

This article was originally published on the BruteProtect blog. BruteProtect was a plugin designed to stop malicious IPs from accessing WordPress websites. The technology behind BruteProtect is now part of Jetpack’s security features, protecting millions of website from brute force attacks every day.


Thanks for all the feedback and shares on Part 1, see that post for more info on which modules in Jetpack are activated by default and which “Other” plugins we used to test against.

There have been a number of requests for us to show what WordPress core (with no plugins) and Jetpack activated but all modules deactivated looks like, so here we go.

Note that all of the numbers have changed a bit because we re-ran all tests from scratch with an updated version of WebPageTest.

About our testing methodology:
Tests were run from a private instance of WebPageTest, run from an EC2 instance within 1ms of our test subject server. Each test was run 27 times, and we used the median score for each factor. The test server had no other traffic on it while these tests were being performed.

Jetpack 3.3: A Single Home for all your WordPress Sites

With the release of Jetpack 3.3 this week, we bring you a new centralized dashboard from which you can manage all your WordPress sites — both your WordPress.com and your Jetpack-connected sites, regardless of where they’re hosted.

 

All Your Sites. One Dashboard.

From day one, Jetpack’s mission has been to bring feature parity between WordPress sites hosted on WordPress.com and those hosted elsewhere. With this release, your Jetpack sites appear alongside those hosted on WordPress.com and enjoy the same user interface, management, and posting functionality.
1
See all your sites on a single page and know at a glance if Jetpack or another plugin requires an update. Search through multiple sites to easily identify the one you’re after.

 

Initiate plugin updates

2

Initiate plugin updates for a single site or for all your sites at once. When a plugin is out of date, you will see a notification right away. Turn plugins on or off with one click — per site or in bulk.

 

Automatic updates

5

Ensure you’re always running the latest version of Jetpack — or any other plugin — turn on auto-updates. Again, you can do this on a per-site basis or in bulk.

 

Centralized posting and mobile UI

4

Publish new posts to any WordPress.com or Jetpack site from the same editor available at WordPress.com/Post. We optimized everything from the ground up to work on all mobile and tablet devices. You can manage and post to your sites from anywhere, on any device, with a full-featured experience.

 

How to Update

Visit the Plugins page in your Dashboard and update Jetpack from there. Alternatively update all your sites in bulk from wordpress.com/plugins/jetpack.

 

How to Install

You can install Jetpack by visiting our install page or by searching for it in your Plugins page on your dashboard.
