Network Performance Optimization (NP²).
Internet Performance as a Service
The internet is a black box with little to no visibility into network performance and no control over it.
Datapath.io took the principles of SDN and SD-WAN and applied them to the public internet, making it more agile and flexible.
Unprecedented level of visibility into network performance and control over network equipment at data center facilities.
Giving content providers programmatic control over the internet to leverage network infrastructure in response to business and network requirements.
Datapath.io Solution for Network Performance Optimization
- 60% better performance as compared to AWS
- Wins on 90% of the routes
- 350 ms soft failover
- 5 minutes setup
- No downside deployment
- No infrastructure changes
Improve network performance by 60%
Datapath.io creates a real-time performance map of the internet.
The map provides IP level performance visibility into all 600,000 internet prefixes.
We then use this map to re-route internet traffic in real time based on performance metrics.
This allows us to make web services up-to 60% faster and reduce data transfer costs.
Datapath.io dynamically changes default BGP routes in favor of ones with better performance.
Network Route Optimization
Network performance depends to a large degree on network routing policies. Network routing policies determine which ISP your internet traffic flows through.
ISPs have different performance metrics, and using one at the expense of another can result in divergent network performance. BGP routing is performance agnostic and network engineers have little to no control over ISP routing.
Datapath.io re-engineers BGP to make routing decisions based on the real-time performance of different ISPs.
Minimize Network Latency
Datapath.io is uniquely suited to service providers offering transactional or time sensitive web services.
Datapath.io tracks network latency in all network prefixes.
We help you reach end users over the fastest Internet routes with the lowest network latency.
Deployment. Two flavors of integration into a service providers network.
Cloud/Infrastructure as a service – IaaS
The cloud/IaaS deployment places the Datapath.io appliance between the virtual infrastructure and the transit providers.
The connection to the virtual infrastructure is a physical connect (i.e. AWS DirectConnect 1Gbase-LX or 10Gbase-LR).
Each customer is connected to the appliance using an unique VLAN identifier.
Existing infrastructure (Bare-metal)
The Datapath.io appliance integrates into existing networks using the internal Border Gateway Protocol iBGP.
The router of the hosting provider and the transit providers are not replaced thus providing investment protection. Instead, the router is configured as a route reflector that peers with the Datapath.io appliance.
Per the requirements of the application, the Datapath.io appliance overrides the local preference of certain routes and communicates them back to the router of the hosting provider.
