Ballista is an application accelerator that significantly improves the load time for applications published through the Microsoft Forefront UAG gateway and optimizes datastreams which reduce total network traffic.
Ballista™ is 100% server-side technology that has no dependence on client components.
Running Ballista™ Application Accelerator provides seven main benefits:
1) Dramatically reduces application response times for end users
2) Optimizes web application traffic through intelligent caching and server request reductions
3) Boosts network efficiency by reducing bandwidth usage and balancing server workload
4) Pushes application performance beyond their design limitations
5) Enables more users to use the same resources in less time
6) No client to install, unobtrusive to end users
7) Significantly faster response times for end users, especially on lower bandwidth devices such as mobile phones
Ballista™ increases your overall operational efficiency and reduces the costs of running your network, by accelerating the performance of your web-based software applications. You get more done with fewer resources and less time.
By dynamically analyzing your web-based application traffic as it crosses the gateway, Ballista finds outexactly where to optimize application data transfer through your network (and the internet) using PortSys’ proprietary algorithms.
