Common Use Cases

Backup and restore quickly to / from Amazon S3
Backing up and restoring to Amazon S3 can be both time consuming and cost you greater bandwidth charges. When you need to restore, you need your data in a hurry. Your existing bandwidth may cause backups and restores to take too long.

Using CloudOptimizer can significantly reduce bandwidth and data transfer time and costs. CloudOptimizer enables you to do fast and efficient backups and restores of your data.

Speed up your applications
When you move applications to the cloud, access from users, customers, and partners can be slow. Since the application is farther away from clients and more users are remote and mobile, applications can become slow and unusable. Applications such as SharePoint, SAP, Oracle, WebLogic, and Blackboard can suffer greatly due to increased latency when they are moved to the cloud.

Using CloudOptimizer can greatly speed up access to most applications, making your users happier and more productive.

Faster MySQL replication
Improve the performance of replication between Master and Slave MySQL databases using CloudOptimizer. Stop the network from being a choke point for replication and speed up the execution of MySQL and transaction (bin) log transactions.

Most applications and protocols can be accelerated
Some applications that use HTTP or any TCP protocol can slow down due to the effects of network latency and other network challenges in the cloud (packet loss, network contention, or congestion). Many applications can benefit from protocol specific optimizations, compression, de-duplication, or other optimizations.

CloudOptimizer can provide optimization and acceleration to your new or existing applications transparently and easily. Faster apps makes cloud migrations easier and quicker.
