Hints for boosting application performance

Today's applications struggle to reach peak performance across large distributed networks. This tip from NewsFactor highlights seven tips for boosting app performance.

  2. Study the traffic on your network.
  3. Put a terminal server in place.
  4. Invest in WAN optimization or app acceleration technology.

  6. Upgrade to MPLS (Multiprotocol Label Switching).
  7. Don't wait for information to come to you.
