WarpServer™

Product Brief

WarpServer™ — Software Module for Origin Servers

WarpServer™ is a software module that runs on a TCP sender such as content servers to optimize TCP data delivery speed between the servers and the end users. It can be loaded onto web servers, caching servers, load balancers or application servers in a highly scalable fashion.

WarpServer™ speeds up download speeds to the end user without any modification to the receiving device. Performance for WarpServer™ depends on network variables such as round trip time (RTT), packet loss %, available bandwidth, size of content, and other factors. It is based on Badu’s WarpTCP™ technology, which was developed specifically to perform well in wireless networks.

WarpTCP™ — Smarter Congestion Control

TCP was invented 35+ years ago with guaranteed delivery of data in mind, it was never designed for use in massive cloud infrastructures or today’s overly crowded wireless networks. Given the jittery nature of today’s highly-shared wireless networks, TCP often overreacts to congestion and other network variations which results in a drastic drop in data throughput. This overreacting causes a reduction in utilized available bandwidth, which results in a generally poor user experience.

WarpTCP™ is a set of intelligent algorithms that maximize TCP throughput in the face of network variations such as delay, jitter, packet loss and random bandwidth fluctuation. It was especially designed to maintain high TCP throughput in wireless networks such as LTE and Wi-Fi. Compared to competing TCP acceleration solutions, WarpTCP™ does not overreact to temporary or false-alarm congestion, minimizes re-transmissions, and recovers faster from a congestion event.

Use Cases

WarpServer™ is ideal for latency sensitive applications found in the use cases below:

  • Content Delivery Networks (CDNs)
  • Application Delivery Controllers (ADCs)
  • Cloud (SaaS/IaaS/PaaS) delivery optimization to end user
  • Enterprise hybrid cloud architecture application optimization
  • Retail/eCommerce sites requiring fast web page loads
  • Organizations requiring large file transfers over long network distances
  • VOD (video on demand) and Video Streaming service optimization
  • Mobile device upload optimization

Benchmarks

The WarpServer™ benchmarks presented below were measured on a live production network with automated test agents across the globe. For both use cases WarpServer™ showed faster download times compared to standard TCP, regardless of file size or network distance between server and end user.
