MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 03/12/14 -- Instart Logic, the creators of the world's first web application streaming network, announced today the rapid adoption of its cloud-based application delivery service. Since launching last summer, the Instart Logic customer base has grown more than 500 percent and its service is now delivering high-performance web and cloud applications and content to more than 450 million devices worldwide. In addition, the company's operations team has logged more than 18 months of uptime with no major service disruptions.
Instart Logic's growth has come in large and mid-sized companies serving millions to tens or hundreds of millions of page views each month. The company's customers are Internet retailers, online travel and hospitality companies, multi-channel vendors, software-as-a-service providers, and online media and gaming companies, including Washington Post, Omni Hotels & Resorts, Volcom, Wine.com, Dollar Shave Club, New Relic, Kongregate, and Gogobot. These companies chose Instart Logic because, unlike legacy approaches such as content delivery networks (CDNs) and WAN optimization products -- which were built for a wired world with an emphasis on the middle mile -- its service was designed for the modern era, with a focus on the cloud, delivery across all device types, including mobile, and a deep understanding of applications and rich, visual content.
The secure Instart Logic cloud-client platform is redefining application delivery. It is the world's first application delivery solution that extends itself past the edge of the network to the end users' devices themselves, blowing through wireless last mile bottlenecks, and is based on application rather than network intelligence. Its unique combination of application virtualization in the browser and application intelligence built into the Instart Logic cloud allows companies to rethink the delivery of applications. No longer are rich, highly dynamic applications and high-fidelity images at odds with cloud services, a multitude of user devices, and last mile delivery over congested WiFi, 3G, and 4G networks.
For online retailers, gaming companies and multi-channel companies with an online presence, Instart Logic's breakthrough application delivery technologies boost company revenues by increasing conversions and radically improving user experiences through faster load times and richer graphics. For SaaS providers, the service ensures that customers receive high performance and content freshness for highly dynamic applications.
More than 30 percent of the end users benefitting from Instart Logic's unique technologies are accessing applications via mobile devices and this user segment is growing quickly. Customers such as Dollar Shave Club have reported 16 percent to 126 percent improvements in conversions on mobile devices after rerouting their traffic through Instart Logic's global network.
Since its launch in June of 2013, Instart Logic has continued to innovate, with the recent addition of new features and services, including PCI compliance and enhanced HTML streaming, which ensure both security and high performance applications.
Instart Logic's unique cloud-client platform, which uses the world's first transparent browser-side library, allows for frictionless adoption of the Web and cloud application delivery service. Using information pulled in by the cloud-client interactions, the Instart Logic service automatically identifies which parts of a web page should be prioritized in the page load process and puts them in the front of the line. The service allows online companies and SaaS providers to prioritize the download of the most important parts of a page and then stream the rest in the background, enabling end users to interact with the content much sooner than is possible with other acceleration approaches.
With dozens of patents pending, Instart Logic has established itself as one of the leading technology innovators in the application delivery space. "In a world where slow can be as bad as down, hitting 450 million devices in less than eight months validates the value we bring to the rapidly changing application delivery market," explains Manav Mital, CEO and co-founder of Instart Logic. "As users demand faster access to more rich applications over even more device types, the Instart Logic cloud-based application delivery service has been proven to deliver zero downtime which translates to better customer satisfaction and more revenue for our customers."
About Instart Logic:
Instart Logic provides the world's first web application streaming network. It is the only application delivery solution with built-in intelligence that understands a web application and how the browser consumes it. Intelligent streaming allows users to interact almost immediately with a web page or application with only a partial download. This is especially useful for improving user experiences over wireless network connections. Instart Logic empowers online companies and SaaS providers to deliver current and next-generation rich web- and SAAS-based applications that dramatically boost user engagement, increase customer loyalty and drive new revenue streams. Instart Logic is funded by Andreessen Horowitz, Greylock Partners, Sutter Hill Ventures, Tenaya Capital, and several notable Silicon Valley angel investors.

We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC, and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will w...

The term culture has had a polarizing effect among DevOps supporters. Some propose that culture change is critical for success with DevOps, but are remiss to define culture. Some talk about a DevOps culture but then reference activities that could lead to culture change and there are those that talk about culture change as a set of behaviors that need to be adopted by those in IT. There is no question that businesses successful in adopting a DevOps mindset have seen departmental culture change, ...

There's Big Data, then there's really Big Data from the Internet of Things. IoT is evolving to include many data possibilities like new types of event, log and network data. The volumes are enormous, generating tens of billions of logs per day, which raise data challenges. Early IoT deployments are relying heavily on both the cloud and managed service providers to navigate these challenges. In her session at Big Data Expo®, Hannah Smalltree, Director at Treasure Data, discussed how IoT, Big D...

The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, discussed single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series dat...

The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless. The Internet of Things (IoT) is nothing if not an endless proliferation of details. It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, a...

Fundamentally, SDN is still mostly about network plumbing. While plumbing may be useful to tinker with, what you can do with your plumbing is far more intriguing. A rigid interpretation of SDN confines it to Layers 2 and 3, and that's reasonable. But SDN opens opportunities for novel constructions in Layers 4 to 7 that solve real operational problems in data centers. "Data center," in fact, might become anachronistic - data is everywhere, constantly on the move, seemingly always overflowing. Net...

WebRTC defines no default signaling protocol, causing fragmentation between WebRTC silos. SIP and XMPP provide possibilities, but come with considerable complexity and are not designed for use in a web environment. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Matthew Hodgson, technical co-founder of the Matrix.org, discussed how Matrix is a new non-profit Open Source Project that defines both a new HTTP-based standard for VoIP & IM signaling and provides reference implementations.
