Software Architect's Handbook
Three very different network optimization vendors made three very different product announcements over the last few weeks. But there's one common thread: Making the most of what you have, whether it's redundant networks (Ipanema Technologies), lots of digital assets (Level 3 Communications), or a new acquisition (Blue Coat Systems). (Compare Application Acceleration and WAN Traffic Optimization products)
For large enterprise, Ipanema debuted a new feature that gives its customers with redundant network infrastructures the tools to better utilize all available bandwidth. An enterprise might have a primary MPLS network with backup ISDN or DSL lines, for example. The new route-selection feature, called smart|path, is designed to let enterprises manage bandwidth across their primary and secondary networks in tandem, rather than using the secondary line only when the primary service fails.
Ipanema's ip|engine devices, which are deployed at customers' data centers and branch offices, collect link information such as available bandwidth. The smart-path technology compares that data to preset application performance objectives and an analysis of traffic to determine path selection.
