IS-2009-110: Acceleration 101

This white paper from F5 Networks, Inc. explains techniques for improving throughput via a wide area network running Internet protocols.  It explains methods such as balancing the loads based on traffic to multiple servers containing the same, compression, data duplication, caching, optimizing TCP, optimizing http and applications, and offloading SSL process (data encryption) to remote offices.  Some data compressors can run up to 1 Gbps.  Data duplication updates local caches based on changes in data streams.
