White paper | Dynamic Web Acceleration: What is it, who needs it, how it works
With today’s advanced hardware and software for web acceleration, most cloud applications and websites can generate dynamic content in just a second or two at the origin server. Plus, the prevalence of broadband connections has reduced last-mile delays to a few tenths of a second for average sized web pages. Network-level backbone latencies can also be measured in tenths of a second or less, even for international transit. So why, then, does it commonly take three to ten seconds, or even more, to return a response to an end user?
This whitepaper explains the reasons behind poor content delivery and web performance. It also demonstrates how dynamic web and cloud acceleration solutions can help organizations overcome such poor performance.
Some key topics explored in this whitepaper include:
- Internet issues
- What causes performance problems
- Web Acceleration Solutions
- Who can benefit
- The Benefit of Web Acceleration for a Supply Chain Management Business
From the whitepaper:
“The Internet was not designed to support the fast delivery of the mission-critical applications found on so many websites. And technologies designed to improve Internet performance – including caching, content delivery, and intelligent routing – do not adequately address the performance requirements of dynamic, web-based applications. These problems are magnified for dynamic, non-cacheable content due to a greater dependency on the origin server and the distance between an end user and the origin server. Dynamic content is non-cacheable because it is highly personalized and time-sensitive. Minutes, or even moments, after dynamic content is cached, it becomes irrelevant. As a result, effectively serving dynamic content requires continuous connectivity between end users and the application server. Yet legacy TCP/IP, with its narrowband transmission protocol, was not developed to maintain this needed level of connectivity.”
CDNetworks’ Dynamic Web Acceleration solution promises to address these issues, helping enterprises increase the speed and performance of web-based application response time by as much as 10X, leading to increased productivity, lower operating costs, and a much better user experience.
