Click through to learn more about application acceleration, from Internap, an IT infrastructure services provider.

While already an established market, WAN acceleration and application optimization technologies are taking center stage on enterprise IT investment checklists in 2011 and beyond.

The proliferation of business-critical applications and content that are reliant on optimal Internet performance – including cloud, SaaS, e-commerce and video streaming, among others – is driving this renewed demand. The performance of the network that these applications ride on directly impacts employee productivity, customer satisfaction and loyalty, brand reputation and even financial performance.

However, network performance is commonly degraded by many factors, including latency, packet loss and the fundamental limitations of core Internet communications protocols used today like Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) and Transmission Control Protocol (TCP).

Application acceleration technologies can dramatically improve the performance of emerging cloud, SaaS and other Internet-based content and applications. In this slideshow, IT infrastructure services provider Internap takes the mystery out of application acceleration, explaining emerging delivery models and how to decide which option is best for your organization.
