Hummingbird + W3 Total Cache + Uptime only

Does Hummingbird do everything that W3 Total Cache does, such as support database and object caching? I feel like having both is overkill, but I like the Uptime feature in Hummingbird. Can Uptime be used without Hummingbird?

    Hello Greg

    Hope you're doing well!

    I am afraid the Hummingbird doesn't provide object caching; WordPress, by default, does a form of "Object Caching" on a page single load. Hummingbirds included the following features:
    - Page Cashing
    - Browser Caching
    - Gravatar Caching
    - Advanced Minification
    - WPMU DEV CDN
    - Uptime
    - GZIP configuration
    - Performance Report

    You can use both plugins at the same time, as long as same features are not active in both of them. For example, if Page cache is active in Hummingbird, do not activate site caching in W3 Total Cache.

    Can Uptime be used without Hummingbird?

    No, I afraid Uptime is implemented in the Hummingbird and can't be used without it

    If you have any further questions, please feel free to open a chat on our Live Support page.

    Have a nice day and take care!

    Cheers,
