Dynamic Site Acceleration
Dynamic site acceleration
To date, only a few CDNs offer Dynamic Site Acceleration (DSA) to improve the performance of personalized and dynamic content and acceleration of transaction-based Web applications. Acceleration of dynamic content through an improved TCP/IP path is particularly important for financial transactions such as e-commerce (since latency may be perceived as failure by the user). Lowering the latency and improving the performance of a site increases the conversion and site loyalty.
The traditional CDN model does not allow for effective Website integration. HTML code must be changed at the origin to tag and differentiate static from dynamic content. For many sites, this structure changes frequently. Control and visibility are very limited since there is no full-site or real-time reporting, precluding the online business from making informed decisions regarding server load balancing and performance enhancement.
Active management of content performance and cost is rendered impossible with the traditional CDN model. As content providers give greater priority to content monetization, manageability becomes imperative.
