Application response time is a measure that everyone who uses the Web instinctively applies to their online experience. Users respond positively to fast applications and much less favorably to slow ones. The growth of online access has highlighted the limitations of online application delivery, particularly in cases where users are widely distributed, there is lots of dynamic content or the application is sensitive to network delay.
Web acceleration can increase productivity and user satisfaction by increasing the performance of your web-based or web-accessible applications.
Internap’s TCP acceleration solution, working in conjunction with our Performance IP service, provides end-to-end web acceleration of dynamic content. Unlike competing application acceleration products, it requires no hardware or software to deploy.
It works by optimizing the performance of the Transmission Control Protocol (TCP), which allows devices on the Internet to exchange data. For example, an enterprise running a business application on a server located in a data center can use accelerated IP to speed up delivery of the application to users located anywhere in the world. This means better performance and more efficient bandwidth utilization.
Accelerated IP can also be used in conjunction with other technologies like the Internap Content Delivery Network (CDN) to enhance the overall delivery of all types of data and applications.
