Riverbed Stingray Case Study - GreatSchools

With one million page views per day, and traffic nearly doubling in the months before school resumes, GreatSchools puts a great deal of effort into ensuring excellent site performance. Most of that effort previously came from front-end engineering, with three engineers spending about a week per quarter working to keep page load times under 20 seconds. To reduce the amount of time spent hand optimizing content, and ultimately to allow the front-end team to spend more time creating new site functionality, GreatSchools deployed Stingray Traffic Manager 9.0 with Aptimizer. The Aptimizer web content optimization functionality has freed up three to five weeks per quarter for developing new functionality. With faster page downloads, more visitors stay and use the site.

Riverbed Stingray Case Study - Golder Associates

Once deployed, Stingray Aptimizer immediately began reducing SharePoint page load times in regions where performance had previously been poor. The page that took 55 seconds to become available to a user in Johannesburg, for instance, took only 15 seconds for the first view after Stingray Aptimizer software was installed. Subsequent views took several seconds at most. Other pages downloaded in Johannesburg in as little as two to four seconds. A SharePoint page that took five seconds to load on a user’s computer in Europe took only 1.2 seconds after its deployment – a 4x improvement.

Edge-Core Case Study - Mazzmatazz Project in Barcelona

In order to deliver these types of services, networks need to be able to support high bandwidth, low-delay and low-jitter (delay variation) transmission. This means core networks should support service separation and service prioritization in order to transfer different kinds of traffic with different behavior aggregates. Such solutions are provided by a Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) mechanism and Differential Services protocols which are used for traffic engineering and EE QoS provisioning in the core networks. In 2012 Sala Razzmatazz in Barcelona, one of Spain’s leading music venues, needed to find switches that would be able to meet these requirements. to better serve staff and customers.
