IP Application Accelerator Product Brief - Fast throughput for IP-enabled business processes

  1. 1. AKAMAI WEB PERFORMANCE SOLUTIONS: PRODUCT BRIEF Your employees, partners and customers have an ever-growing need to be able to access critical IP-enabled applications anywhere, anytime – and from a wide range of end user devices. These include mobile applications, applications accessed over SSL VPN connections, real-time interactive web conferencing solutions, virtualized applications and desktops (VDI), secure large-file transfers, or remote desktop management solutions. While these applications provide your end users with key business capabilities, poor performance or spotty availability of these applications can lead to decreased end user productivity, low adoption rates and higher IT support costs. These applications must perform quickly, securely and reliably every time in order for you to realize the full benefits of the applications you have deployed to run your business and support your customers, employees and partners.

The ability to link the extended enterprise with any IP-based application without installing and maintaining more client software reduces administrative overhead and lowers the total cost of ownership. — George Hamilton, Director, Enterprise Infrastructure, Yankee Group Origin Appication Server AKAMAI PUBIC GATEWAY Internet Optimized Akamai Path Sure Route TCP Optimization Packet Replication AKAMAI EDGE SERVER End User
