Stingray Aptimizer is a Web Performance Optimization (WPO) tool that performs just-in-time optimizations to web applications. This results in web pages loading up to 4x faster while using 30% less bandwidth. Being just-in-time means optimizations are performed on the fly with no code changes needed. Stingray Aptimizer optimizations are split into four basic categories:
Combining Files: Merging multiple files into a single larger file to reduce round trips
Data Reduction: Reducing the bandwidth used by compressing and removing unnecessary data
Caching: Reducing the amount of traffic by optimizing the usage of both the browser cache and the intermediary cache network that lies between the server and the end user
Dynamic layout: Dynamically adjusting the layout of pages to ensure they load as efficiently as possible.
The Stingray Aptimizer Technical Overview provides a detailed technical overview of the optimizations performed in each category.
