In this digital world, fast and reliable movement of digital
data, including massive sizes over global distances, is
becoming vital to business success across virtually every
industry. The Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) that has
traditionally been the engine of this data movement, however, has
inherent bottlenecks in performance (Figure 1), especially for
networks with high, round-trip time (RTT) and packet loss, and most
pronounced on high-bandwidth networks. It is well understood that
these inherent “soft” bottlenecks arcaused by TCP’s AdditiveIncrease-Multiplicative-Decrease (AIMD) congestion avoidance
algorithm, which slowly probes the available bandwidth of the
network, increasing the transmission rate until packet loss is detected
and then exponentially reducing the transmission rate. However, it is
less understood that other sources of packet loss, such as losses due
to the physical network media, not associated with network
congestion equally reduce the transmission rate.
Hundreds of organizations around the world use Microsoft® SharePoint® with over 80 million implementations, allowing them to develop intelligent portals that seamlessly connect users, teams, and knowledge. With the release of Microsoft Offi ce SharePoint Server 2007, F5 has specifi cally developed and tested a comprehensive Application Ready infrastructure that enhances the security, availability and performance of SharePoint deployments, whether it’s over the LAN or across a global WAN.

Today's systems and servers need an efficient way to move the ever-increasing amounts of data over networks. Many companies have introduced solutions such as TCP/IP Offload Engines (TOE) Network Interface Cards (TNICs), Network Interface Cards (NICs), and iSCSI Host Bus Adapters (HBAs) to solve efficiency and throughout challenges. However, the functionality of these solutions is quite varied, and in some cases, rapidly becoming obsolete.

The need to understand how the performance and problems within the technical infrastructure impacts the capabilities of the business is massive. However, the majority of companies can only measure application and specific asset performance, whereas many issues within the infrastructure lie at the transport level, where packet switching presents both great opportunities and major issues.
