Stingray Aptimizer Software

Dramatically accelerate web applications

Faster web applications, happier users, and liberated developers – these are a few of the many benefits of Riverbed Stingray™ Aptimizer software. Sophisticated web content optimization (WCO) techniques automatically speed up public websites, intranets, cloud apps, and Microsoft SharePoint deployments.

  • Speed up web content served across networks regardless of access device or browser used for improved application performance and a high level of service for users.

    Three options make deployment flexible

    • As a standalone software proxy appliance
    • As a licensed add-on to Riverbed® Stingray™ Traffic Manager software
    • As a web-server extension on Microsoft SharePoint or IIS/ASP.NET

    Automatic performance optimization

    Deployed as software on the web server itself, Stingray Aptimizer software delivers four categories of performance features:

    • File merging: Merge JavaScript and style sheets, image spriting and background image inlining
    • Compression: JavaScript and style sheet minification for white space and comment removal, image resampling, metadata removal, and dynamic gzip/deflate compression
    • Caching: On-server resource caching, dynamic page caching, browser caching, and intelligent auto URL versioning
    • Dynamic layout: JavaScript/style sheet re-ordering, asynchronous JavaScript loading, on-demand image loading, and device- and browser-aware optimizations

    Up to four times faster load times and 90% less data on the network

    Accelerate the load times of your complex web pages by up to four times. Meanwhile, intelligent caching and dynamic compression reduces data on the wire by up to 90%.

    Any device, any browser, automatically

    Just-in-time acceleration automatically adapts your content to all of the popular browsers and devices, including mobile devices running Google Android OS and Apple iOS.

    Speed up Microsoft SharePoint for better collaboration

    A patent-pending process cuts SharePoint load times 33–75% by reducing browser round trips back and forth to the server. No extra hardware, no changes to website application code, or additional costs necessary.

  • Stingray Aptimizer automated complex performance tuning

    25% boost to customer conversion rate at US Markerboard

    By making automatic performance tuning possible, Stingray Aptimizer helped US Markerboard reduce page load times by three seconds, without developer involvement. US Markerboard also saw direct improvements in sales:

    • Conversion Rate: 25% improvement
    • Average Order Value: 15% improvement
    • Purchased Products: 65% improvement
    • Sales Increase: 15% growth in 2010

    Faster page load times encourages use of SharePoint intranet

    40 seconds cut from SharePoint load times at Golder Associates in Johannesburg, South Africa

    At Golder Associates, SharePoint page load times were reduced immediately in regions where performance had previously been poor. A page that took 55 seconds to become available to a user in Johannesburg, South Africa for instance, now took only 15 seconds for the first view.

    “Although the primary benefit of Stingray Aptimizer software is performance improvement, it has also helped improve adoption of the intranet in those areas where performance originally lagged.”

    - Greg Stimson, financial and program manager at Golder Associates.

  • Stingray Aptimizer software dynamically accelerates web content by merging scripts and style sheets for fewer browser to web-server round trips, compressing images to reduce bandwidth, optimizing caching for faster repeat visits, and prioritizing actions to give the best possible response time for loading web pages.

    Step 1: Install Stingray Aptimizer software

    Install the software on a server, as a proxy, as a licensed add-on to Stingray Traffic Manager software, or as a web-server extension for SharePoint. Configuration takes just 1 to 2 hours with no changes to your application.

    Step 2: Stingray Aptimizer software gets to work

    Sophisticated WCO techniques accelerate web content and reduce data size. Stingray Aptimizer reduces the number of HTTP round trips, and adaptively adjusts layout for more efficient page loading.

    Step 3: Enjoy the results

    • Pages load up to four times faster
    • Lowers traffic up to 90%
    • Get these results across all types of browsers and devices
