Compaq Partnership Speeds Distance Learning

A partnership between Compaq Computers and Packeteer has produced Compaq Dynamic Content Accelerator - Web acceleration software that is reportedly increasing the speed of distance learning by about 500 percent. Loaded on Compaq industry-standard servers, and powered by Packeteer's PacketWise/XA Internet Content Acceleration software, the Compaq Dynamic Content Accelerator maximizes the performance of higher education applications, such as e-learning, online registration and other business-critical, Web-based programs. It combines content-intelligent image and text compression, with automatic detection of end-user browser and connection speed to optimize the delivery of both dynamic and static content across the Internet.

The software will be factory-bundled on Compaq ProLiant DL320 industry-standard server platforms. The system installs transparently in front of Web servers to optimize and accelerate the performance of Web-based applications allthe way to the user's desktop.
