Next Application Acceleration in the Clouds-2 Next

Designed nearly 40 years ago, TCP can slow Web applications because of the inefficient way that it manages IP session initiation, packet loss, and transmission windows. These problems are being exacerbated as users become more global and expect seamless, high-performance access to applications anywhere, anytime.

Acceleration technologies address this by enabling TCP to transmit more data at a faster rate, allowing applications to load quicker and maintain accelerated performance.

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.
