HTTP/3 – Getting ready for the future with Cavisson NetStorm

HTTP/3 is the upcoming version of the Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP), which is the underlying protocol used for communication on the World Wide Web. Let us look at some of the most significant changes being made in HTTP/3 and how it proves to be beneficial for both organizations and end-users alike:

QUIC –  Secure and reliable connection in a single handshake

QUIC enables secure and reliable connections in a single handshake. This is achieved through a feature called “0-RTT” (Zero Round Trip Time), which allows the client to send data to the server in the first packet itself, without waiting for a response from the server. This reduces the latency and speeds up the connection establishment process. QUIC is that it runs over UDP, which is a connectionless protocol that is less prone to congestion and provides better performance in high-latency networks. QUIC also includes built-in congestion control mechanisms that are designed to prevent network congestion and ensure fair sharing of network resources among different connections.


Common Application Performance Bottlenecks—And How to Avoid Them?

In computing, the term “bottleneck” refers to an overloaded network, a device whose one component is unable to keep pace with the rest of the system, thus slowing overall performance, or an application issue that may be causing your customers/end-users to wait indefinitely while performing business critical operations. 

Fixing bottleneck issues usually results in returning the system to a stable level of performance; however, to fix bottleneck issues, it is necessary to first identify where the issue lies which decides the all-important metric(s) – mean time to detect (MTTD) & mean time to resolve (MTTR). 

Poor application performance can be caused by a variety of factors. Even just a few seconds of application downtime can have an adverse effect on revenues, reputation, and customer satisfaction. Understanding and overcoming barriers to optimal application performance is crucial to delivering the best experience to each user.
