Web Accelerators Improve Site Performance
As greater numbers of consumers are going online in search of a faster, more convenient way to shop, retailers are striving to provide the best Web experiences they can for their customers. Two new products from Limelight Networks are designed to help businesses achieve that goal, expanding the software maker’s arsenal of website acceleration tools and services.
The Commerce Accelerator allows merchants to balance a richer end-user experience with overall site performance. The service maximizes the delivery of dynamic site content such as transactions and shopping carts, personalized pages and other highly interactive content. Commerce Accelerator can amplify the effectiveness of customer-owned infrastructure and increase the availability of storefronts during peak usage periods.
The Portal Accelerator speeds the performance of Web and extranet applications, helping to ensure effective communication and collaboration between partners, suppliers, co-workers, employees and customers around the globe. The service uses Limelight’s global infrastructure to increase application availability, response times and security by seamlessly extending the reach of customer-owned infrastructure.
Limelight has also updated its site delivery solution, Site Accelerator. Ideal for businesses that target regional end users, the service can significantly reduce requests made to customer-owned infrastructure.
