Stampede introduces Advanced Virtual Pipelining
Stampede Technologies, a provider of acceleration solutions for Web-enabled applications, has introduced Advanced Virtual Pipelining (AVP), acceleration technology that promises to improve the performance of network-intensive applications by 40 percent.
Stampede’s AVP can accelerate interactive Web-based business applications that must communicate large and/or frequent amounts of data, and the new request-intensive Web 2.0/AJAX applications.
AVP is based on a two-sided hardware/software acceleration platform employing technologies such as TurboStreaming (for accelerating compressed or encrypted objects), SSL Client-side Termination (for accelerating SSL transactions), Intelligent Cache Differencing, Image Transformation, Connection Management and Load Balancing, providing significant performance enhancement.
These optimization technologies support traditional HTTP/HTTPS, legacy TCP and the emerging Web 2.0/AJAX application environments. In addition, Stampede’s Acceleration On Demand client technology is automatically injected into the responses sent to the end user, without the need to install software at the client.
TurboStreaming (multiplexed TCP sessions) enables HTTP browser traffic to be intermixed across multiple “pipelines”. All browser activity is optimized, including the network-intensive polling associated with Web 2.0/AJAX applications.
A key advantage of Stampede’s AVP client-side implementation is that communication resources can be shared across multiple applications, and all HTTP requests and responses from any application (including multiple browsers) are intermixed simultaneously across multiple concurrent sessions.
