Optimizing network performance is a task that spans multiple domains – from architecting the network, with capacity and topology (segmentation) considerations, through redundancy, bandwidth management and security aspects. But today, I would like to raise 5 additional ways to optimize overall network performance by best utilizing advanced Application Delivery Controller (ADC) capabilities for front end applications.
Since HTTP 1.1 was introduced 17 years ago, the Internet has evolved. This evolution introduced many changes, among them the development and delivery of rich content to users. These improvements enhanced the online experience, but did come at a cost – and the currency was performance. Performance challenges that HTTP 1.1 was never designed to handle.
Our latest research into the performance and page composition of top retail sites finds that a typical ecommerce page takes 6.2 seconds to render its primary content, 10.7 seconds to fully load, and weighs in at 1677 KB. Keep reading to find out what this means for site owners who care about delivering the best possible user experience to their customers.
If you go looking for case studies that prove the business value of improving website performance, chances are you’ll encounter a number of studies that focus on obvious ecommerce metrics like cart size and sales. But there are a number of other ways that improving performance can move other business metrics. Today, I want to highlight a few of these metrics using some customer case studies.
Our newest quarterly performance state of the union, released earlier this week, analyzes the load time of the top 500 ecommerce sites and compares their current performance to their performance one year ago. Among other things, we learned that the median web page takes 9.3 seconds to load -- a 21% slowdown in the past twelve months.
2013 was a great year for Radware on the research front. We released numerous studies and blog posts about topics ranging from ecommerce performance to the neuroscience behind mobile user expectations. Below I've corralled 55 amazing things you should know about how your visitors use the web.
Since we began tracking the performance of the top 500 retail websites back in 2010, web page speed has migrated from the technology fringe to center stage, due in part to the numerous case studies from large and small companies demonstrating the relationship between site speed and business KPIs like revenue and conversion rate.
Yet despite all this attention, the question remains: has there been a positive impact on the websites we use every day? Our latest ecommerce performance study suggests not.
A performance SLA is an actionable document that you can use to drive your real user monitoring (RUM) program. Here's how.
A couple of weeks ago, I used this space to answer the question of how front-end web performance optimization (WPO) solutions complement CDNs. Today, I’m going to talk about ADCs and WPO as complementary solutions, by explaining how WPO picks up where your ADC leaves off.
This is one of the most frequently asked questions I encounter. To understand how a front-end web performance optimization (WPO) solution complements a CDN — and ultimately delivers dramatic acceleration gains for your web pages or enterprise applications — you need to understand which pain points each solution addresses.
