Application Optimisation covers a number of technologies that optimise the performance of applications running over networks.
Application Optimisation is relevant to any application hosted in one location and accessed by remote clients, typically over a WAN. Poor performance of network-based applications is typically due to insufficient bandwidth or excessive latency in the network.
Increasing WAN bandwidth may be a partial solution but this is costly and takes time, and fails to address the latency issue.
IT managers are now finding that AO technologies offer an alternative to bandwidth upgrades and can resolve latency issues as well. The relative ease of deploying AO technologies in comparison with WAN bandwidth upgrades means this has become a very compelling solution.
As well as improving the user experience, AO technologies can provide many other benefits including: WAN bandwidth savings, reduction in server workload, improved application availability, improved security and application performance monitoring.
