SPDY was proposed by Google back in November 2009 to reduce the latency and load time of web pages. It was provided as part of the Chromium open-source project and is enabled in Chrome by default.
We at Cotendo took on the challenge, implemented the server side, and extended our proxies to support SPDY, providing SPDY to HTTP “translation”. Guess what? It really speeds things up. But like all new good things, there is still work to do. We will share insights from our implementation, optimization of SSL-based traffic and present performance data both from Google’s and our customers’ deployment.
We believe the introduction of SPDY as a new application layer presents a unique opportunity to rethink web design concepts and front-end-optimization (FEO) techniques. We will discuss some optimizations we developed and suggest some guidelines on how you can approach these new types of optimizations.
