Developing applications for local computers is one thing but once you factor in the latency generated by wide area networks you can significantly reduce productivity if users are forced to wait for painfully slow applications to refresh screens and provide data updates. In order to help speed up the process of writing effective applications for WANs Shunra
has recently released a New WAN optimization and application acceleration selection service.
You may remember Shunra has been a benefactor
to TMC labs for about a decade providing their Cloud
product which has been instrumental at simulating WAN traffic at our labs over the years.
In a recent sit down with the executive management team of Shunra Software I learned how the company has taken its excellent suite of technologies and began offering them up as services. The suite of services includes but is not limited to application profiling and surge testing, allowing developers to be sure applications are performing within the correct parameters – even when pushed to the limit.
Of course a use for such technology is ensuring VoIP applications are running efficiently but the product/service also excels in other areas. For example when choosing between various vendors, Shunra can help you company set up a virtual network environment.
