White paper | A Unified Approach to Website and Web Application Acceleration
The key to extracting maximum value from an extended enterprise is to empower users with access to the applications and data needed to run a business. But it can be difficult and expensive to deliver website content and applications to a globally dispersed audience. This is especially true when attempting to deliver a high-quality user experience in some of the fastest-growing countries with less robust Internet infrastructure.
Fortunately, the means of delivering critical web-based content and applications in a simplified and cost-effective manner has become readily available. Many companies are leveraging content delivery network (CDN) services to manage the global delivery of static content, multimedia, and in some cases, applications.
This paper describes the business and technological drivers behind the fast-growing uptake of CDN services. It also provides details to help CIOs and IT managers evaluate the widely varying capabilities of different CDN service providers.
Some key topics explored in this whitepaper include:
- Web acceleration opportunities
- Delivering performance at reasonable costs
- Drawbacks of working with multiple providers
- Not all CDNs are Created Equal
From the whitepaper:
“The primary challenge for companies seeking to deliver more content and applications over the web is maintaining the quality of the end-user experience. Frequently, a company’s website fails to deliver a high-quality user experience overseas that matches the user experience in the home country. The root cause is the dynamic and inconsistent nature of global Internet performance, which is exacerbated the further end users are located from an origin server. While this problem is well understood, end users do not tolerate it. Whether they are located in China, Russia, India or any country, users expect the same level of reliability and performance as users based in North America and Europe.”
