Internap Network Services Corp., a source for high-performance Internet infrastructure services, announced the next-generation of its patented, intelligent routing software – Managed Internet Route Optimizer (MIRO) – which optimises network traffic for applications and content running on its cloud, hosting and colocation services.
Architected to navigate the increased complexity of the modern Internet, next-gen MIRO delivers faster, more consistent performance for today’s real-time, performance-intensive applications. Furthermore, new HTTP caching and web acceleration capabilities in Internap’s CDN facilitate faster and more reliable delivery of dynamic site content.
With the “Internet of things” quickly gaining momentum, the number of connected devices is growing exponentially. A new app economy has emerged to fulfill insatiable business and consumer demands for mobile and web-based services, providing instant access and content delivery on any device, anywhere in the world.
These changes have, in turn, created more traffic, networks and end points than ever before. Ever since 2004, the global routing table, which refers to the Internet’s total number of destination networks, has quadrupled in size. The result is a highly complex and congested system of networks that can significantly degrade the performance of Internet applications and services.
