From the Back Cover:

Enrich the user experience while keeping control of your network

Networking professionals: At last, comprehensive coverage of content switching technology is in your hands! Optimizing Network Performance with Content Switching: Server, Firewall, and Cache Load Balancing, by topic experts Matthew Syme and Philip Goldie, provides sharp insights into this wide-ranging, rapidly changing technology. You'll learn the concepts, the background, and the architectures of content switching, as well as how it works and where and why it should be deployed to maximize the performance of your networks and servers. Fueled by increasing bandwidth and ever-richer content, this technology is fast becoming a standard in enterprise and ISP networks. Inside you'll find:

  • Full explanations of TCP/IP, HTTP, DNS, and other network fundamentals
  • Vendor-independent coverage of the key content switching applications--server load balancing, Web cache redirection, application redirection, firewall load balancing, and more!
  • Detailed diagrams that illustrate clearly the deployments and topologies for all applications and variations covered in the book
  • A running fictional case study that translates theory into practice, with all applications demonstrated in example implementations
  • Advanced topics including TCP/IP flows and sessions, delayed binding, URL parsing, cookie persistence, server health checking, and load balancing metrics

The advanced topics in Optimizing Network Performance with Content Switching are tailored for engineers with layer 2 and layer 3 experience looking for a comprehensive explanation of the inner workings of content switching. This book is also ideal for managers, application developers, security administrators, sales people, and other professionals who require a firm understanding of the basics of the technology.

Book Description Pearson Education (US), United States, 2003. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Both network and Web performance are topics of major concern to businesses who increasingly depend on the Internet as a business channel. As CDNs (Content Delivery Networks) become a popular choice for both improving Web performance and being able to serve richer Internet content, network managers and network engineers need to learn about the underlying technologies like caching, load balancing and the use of firewalls which make increased performance possible. Content switching is the umbrella term for the technologies (web caching and re-direction, server load balancing, and firewalls to protect your content from unauthorized modification) which make Content Delivery Networks possible. The Authors explain these key technologies that are used to improve Web performance and will allow companies to serve richer web content securely. A running example throughout the book shows how these technologies are used in one company to optimize its Web site. Seller Inventory # APC9780131014688
