WEB APPLICATION DELIVERY

WEB PERFORMANCE IMPACTS MISSIONS.
DOES YOUR SITE DELIVER?

As DOD organizations turn increasingly to web applications as a primary means of exchanging information, the expectations for speed, reliability, and interactivity grow. While dynamically-generated content offers an unprecedented opportunity to engage with end users, rendering pages on the fly can lead to delays and even failures in delivering content.

To meet user expectations, your web site must provide superior performance for every user regardless of their location. It needs to handle high traffic loads during peak usage periods and provide 24x7 availability, especially during unforeseen events.

HOW IT WORKS:

GCDS servers are deployed throughout the DODIN, close to end user populations, including locations in the Continental United States (CONUS), Southwest Asia (SWA), Pacific (PAC), and Europe. The globally distributed GCDS platform leverages a dynamic mapping system to send user requests for application data to an optimal GCDS edge server, depending on their location and other parameters (i.e., network conditions). The GCDS edge server optimally delivers content to end users by serving data they need from a local server, thus improving web application performance, availability, and scalability.
