    Performance On and Off the Track at the Formula 1 Grand Prix Posted on July 10th, 2014 by Robert Castley

    In the world of Formula 1, milliseconds are the difference between Pole Position and second on the grid. Millions of dollars are spent on getting the maximum performance out of both the car and the driver. Aerodynamics, car weight, engine performance, pit crew efficiency, strategists, meteorologists, engineers, etc. all play the part of trying to secure […]

    Have you ever been in the middle of a phone conversation when, suddenly, there is a loss of signal and you can’t hear the person on the other end? What do you do next? Tell the speaker the start and end of the part of the conversation that you didn’t hear? Well, computers communicate the […]

    You Just Have to Be There: Delivering Content Within Mainland China Posted on June 5th, 2014 by Mehdi Daoudi

    While many think of Hong Kong as just another part of China, it has a separate designation as a “Special Administrative Region” of the PRC, making it a semi-autonomous entity on the global stage. This distinction isn’t just political; it carries over to internet connections as well. As such, we have been preaching that in […]

    Adaptive vs. Responsive Web Design: Which Is Right for Your Site? Posted on June 2nd, 2014 by Craig Lowell

    Given the prominence of mobile web browsing, the practice of having multiple versions of a site (under multiple URLs) to accommodate all of the different mobile devices out there is already on its way out. The Responsive Web Design (RWD) revolution is in full effect, and in fact is already being expanded upon. By tweaking […]

    Would You Accept Lag in Real Life? Posted on April 30th, 2014 by Craig Lowell

    There are few things more frustrating these days than the lag we experience when trying to access certain sites.

    Simpson’s Paradox: DevOps’ Big Data Problem Posted on April 3rd, 2014 by Devan Gotowka

    In a big data world, numbers dictate decisions, features and investments. It’s vital we understand just what the numbers are telling us, but depending on analysis, the same data can tell two completely different stories.  It’s called Simpson’s Paradox and it can lead to poor decisions and costly errors. D’oh! More specifically, Simpson’s Paradox is […]

    We’re All Suffering With Netflix Posted on March 3rd, 2014 by Mehdi Daoudi

    Network professionals aside, most of us take access to internet for granted.  How packets flow from one end to another is so obscure, involving last mile networks, transit providers, public exchanges and even more complex delivery methods. The recent Netflix/Comcast deal and Netflix/Verizon dispute has brought the guts of how these tubes work into the […]

    What The World’s Worst DNA Mixup Teaches Us About Monitoring Posted on February 11th, 2014 by Mehdi Daoudi

    The suspect’s DNA had been found at 40 crime scenes, linking her to burglaries, narcotics and six murders. She was Germany’s most-wanted serial killer with a $400,000 bounty on her head, yet no one knew who she was. It turns out the infamous ‘phantom’ wasn’t a murderer at all. Police were hunting an innocent factory […]

    5 Performance Rules Every Ad Serving Company Must Follow Posted on January 30th, 2014 by Devan Gotowka

    Yesterday I was a victim of SPoF or Single Point of Failure. When shopping for a new web cam, an unresponsive ad tag blocked my page from loading and interrupted my browsing. Ads are on everyone’s mind with the Super Bowl coming up this Sunday. Inspired by football, and yesterday’s experience, I thought now would […]

    Web Performance is not an IT thing only! Posted on December 30th, 2013 by Mehdi Daoudi

    “Why is Web Performance important enough to justify a business?”  This is a question I was asked by a friend sitting at a holiday meal last week, and one myself and others in the Web Performance industry get far too often. “Do you have all night?” – I retorted sarcastically. Rolled eyes and a deep […]
