NitroAccelerator ™ Accelerates Cloud-based Content Management System Performance by 20 percent


NitroAccelerator is a no-brainer when it comes to improving cloud application performance. - Peter Boonstra, Infrastructure Solution Consultant, Canon Europe

Nitrosphere, the premier provider of advanced compression solutions to improve the performance, reliability, security and cost of SQL Server application performance, was selected by Canon Europe to improve the performance of their cloud-based applications including their content management system.

Canon Europe’s application performance experts identified the need to offer company content managers with a high degree of timely data delivery. As part of an effort to tune application performance, Canon’s team analyzed applications and explored compression technologies. They searched for ways to tune large SQL Server clusters and found that they had issues with large data transfers. The goal was to improve data transfer efficiency in order to improve application speed time and performance for users.

Canon Europe discovered NitroAccelerator™, a SQL Server compression solution that improves cloud application performance. Other solutions that Canon considered had a more cumbersome implementation and installation time and did not provide the specific performance benefits that the company was seeking. Canon found NitroAccelerator to be the smartest solution because it is adaptive and selectively compresses data packets. By tuning SQL Server in conjunction with NitroAccelerator, Canon Europe is getting 20 percent more throughput—a significant performance increase – especially considering image data is normally considered uncompressible.

“NitroAccelerator is a no-brainer when it comes to improving cloud application performance. We have a demanding end user group, and our focus is to provide them the best experience possible. They manage our customer-facing websites in an image-centric environment. NitroAccelerator helps us deliver better application performance, providing one or two additional seconds of improvement for daily business transactions. This is an environment where every second counts.” -Peter Boonstra, Infrastructure Solution Consultant, Canon Europe
