Must-Have Optimization For Today’s Networks And Applications
Badu Enterprise Solutions

Enterprise Challenges

Most network administrators try to resolve poor application performance due to slow network throughput with expensive and disruptive bandwidth upgrades. These upgrades are often combined with MPLS, SD-WAN and WAN optimization solutions that prioritize application traffic, help prevent packet loss, and accelerate some types of data. However, they aren’t that effective at dealing with today’s increasingly jitter-prone streaming services, IoT devices, voice, video and web applications that transmit data in unpredictable bursts. Networks interpret jitter as congestion, slowing traffic to avoid data loss until throughput collapses and applications stall, even when plenty of bandwidth is available. The jitter-prone nature of today’s applications is compounded by the move to cloud services subject to jitter from VM crosstalk and hypervisor transfer delays, as well as jitter from volatile last mile wireless networks most users rely on for application access.  All of this leads to poor application performance, unproductive employees, and unhappy customers.

Another challenge is that over 80% of internet traffic is now encrypted. Traditional optimization tools that need unencrypted payload access for deduping and compression offer little value, and often make performance worse than having no solution.  They do nothing for data that’s already compressed, and impose encryption/decryption delays at each endpoint that increase jitter.  In addition, they add the maintenance overhead and security risk of exposing sensitive keys to a third-party solution. 

Solution

WarpEngine™ leverages Badu Networks’ patented technology to deliver up to 10X improvements in performance and throughput by filtering out the impact of jitter, today’s most common cause of network throughput collapse. WarpEngine’s algorithmic approach to network optimization doesn’t rely on deduplication or compression, so it requires no payload access. This enables WarpEngine to accelerate all types of traffic – encrypted, unencrypted or compressed without the performance and maintenance overhead, as well as the security risks competing optimization solutions impose. WarpEngine is single-ended and can be installed at any point on the network.  WarpEngine requires no changes to clients or servers, and no costly and disruptive bandwidth upgrades.  It also works in conjunction with your existing optimization, SD-WAN, and ADC solutions.

For enterprises struggling with poor public or private cloud application performance, Badu Networks offers WarpVM™ which leverages the same core WarpEngine technology to filter out the impact of virtualization jitter, as well as jitter generated by hosted applications.

As an option, WarpGateway™ can be installed at each branch office location to complement either WarpEngine or WarpVM, to eliminate local Wi-Fi network jitter caused by RF interference, fading and other factors.  Local Wi-Fi jitter can cause throughput to collapse over the entire network path back to the application running on a server in an on-premises data center, or in a cloud VM.

Use Cases

WarpEngine™ is perfect for enterprises that want to:

  • Dramatically improve existing network throughput without the cost and disruption of upgrades
  • Accelerate large file transfers over a WAN
  • Accelerate transfer of data already in encrypted or compressed form, including image, video and compiled source code files that traditional optimization doesn’t handle well
  • Optimize VOD (video on demand) and Video Streaming services
  • Improve Content Delivery Network (CDN) performance
  • Optimize hybrid cloud applications
  • Speed up web page load times for e-commerce sites.
