  • ESG: Got Clouds? Optimize Application Performance
    Source: Riverbed Technology
    White Paper: Cloud computing is changing the way applications are architected and consumed. However, as organizations continue to leverage cloud computing technology, they must ensure that application performance is not negatively impacted. Depending on the type of application, and distance from the enterprise, latency and network connections could play a major role in slowing down normal network functions. Fortunately, WAN optimization technologies can help to accelerate application performance and deliver a quality user experience.
