Instart Logic provides the first cloud application delivery service in the world to extend beyond the limited backend-only cloud architectures of the past with an innovative, intelligent client-cloud platform delivered as a service. We call this new approach Software-defined Application Delivery since it’s based on a software-defined architecture rather than on hardware and network scale.
The unique client-cloud platform provides true end-to-end control of the application delivery path from client to cloud to origin. This enables radical new approaches to application delivery performance, security, analytics, and more.
The service requires no code changes or SDKs to integrate and works for all existing browsers without any plug-ins or other add-ons. It’s totally transparent to users and the backend infrastructure and requires only simple DNS changes to use.
Instart Logic’s innovative streaming and adaption features provide a completely new way to accelerate web application delivery performance, especially for mobile devices connected via wireless networks. Streaming takes advantage of web application virtualization to send applications in small chunks instead of as monolithic downloads, thereby improving performance by reducing idle processing time in the browser. Adaptation optimizes image size, format and compression to provide fast performance without sacrificing image quality.
Malicious attacks against your web sites are moving to the cloud and so should your protection. Instart Logic provides multi-layered, end-to-end security capabilities to protect your site from hackers and thieves — before they reach your network perimeter. Placing Instart Logic in front of your site provides protections that include Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) mitigation, ProxyWall (our unique web application firewall) and PCI DSS Level 1 compliance for secure payment processing.
The Instart Logic cloud hosts distributed software that optimizes application delivery from the origin web server across the Internet, through the last mile network and to the end user’s device. It does this by transparently analyzing the component parts of the applications such as its images and code.
Using this information, it can apply a range of computer science-derived algorithms to ensure streaming of application components and automatically adapt components to each user’s specific device, browser and network conditions.
The client portion of the Instart Logic software-defined application delivery service is based on a novel new technology we invented — web application virtualization. This allows our service to extend itself transparently into the end user’s browser and form the active client portion of our dual-sided platform. This architecture allows the service to reach beyond the edge of the wired internet — where traditional systems stop — all the way into end users’ browsers on the other side of last mile wireless networks.
This thin virtualization layer sits between the browser APIs and the web site or web application. Because of its complete virtualization of browser APIs and completely transparent design, it requires no code changes to use.
Once in place, this intelligent client transparently virtualizes a web application and is then able to monitor and assemble the streamed web application within the user’s browser based on information and instructions from the cloud.
This powerful platform is delivered as a simple to use and easy-to-adopt globally deployed cloud service. With no software to install and no code changes to make, you can be up and running with our service in as little as 15 minutes by making a few simple changes to your DNS records.
In addition to providing powerful new levels of web performance, the service provides for a full replacement of an existing content delivery network (CDN) with a globally distributed cloud service that offloads and protects backend infrastructure, and provides a full complement of analytics and management services.
The service also provides a much more relevant and performant solution for enterprises looking to accelerate their use of cloud-based SaaS applications, replacing the use of outdated WAN optimization controllers (WOCs) that are no longer relevant as users as their applications leave the confines of enterprise wide area networks (WANs).
