As many service providers and organizations know, it is difficult to control all aspects of the network between the application server and the end customer, which poses significant challenges for application performance guarantees.
To mitigate the effects of choke points in the network, various techniques can be employed on the AX Series new generation server load balancer platform:
- Network level TCP optimization while reducing unnecessary TCP connections
- Content caching to accelerate the user experience and decrease Web server requests
- Compression to reduce transmitted data payloads
- SSL off-load support
- Web Secure Sockets Layer (SSL)
- E-Mail STARTTLS
With the AX Series' specialized hardware, Advanced Core Operating System, and optimization technologies, application performance and user response times are improved with major reductions in bandwidth usage. All of these features accelerate critical Web-based applications for local, remote and branch-office users.
