AppHUB™ Add-on Significantly Improves Office 365 Application Performance by Mapping End Users to the Nearest Microsoft Peering Points Globally

Herndon, VA –July 16, 2018 – Apcela, the high-performance application delivery company, today announced the availability of its Office 365 Accelerator for its AppHUB™ platform.  Built to improve the performance of on-premises, cloud and hybrid enterprise applications, the Office 365 Accelerator was developed to improve performance, latency, packet loss and network congestion experienced by branch office and edge users when accessing Office 365 via the public internet.

Integrated with Apcela’s AppHUB, Apcela’s Office 365 Accelerator is available globally and easily integrates with an enterprise’s existing WAN architecture to provide better Office 365 performance, improved security, and faster response times by:

  • Optimizing peering between  enterprise users and Microsoft’s network of  more than 100 peering points globally;
  • Providing enterprises greater visibility to Office 365 application usage bandwidth, and network flows between users and the physical application location; and
  • Improving data access through distributed storage and security.

“Accelerating cloud application performance is what we do,” said Rob Page, VP of Engineering at Apcela. “We’re leveraging software-defined networking and the reach of our global, low-latency platform to simplify complex cloud application performance challenges such as those large enterprises are encountering as they migrate to the cloud-based, Office 365 suite.”

With Apcela’s Office 365 Accelerator, enterprises access Apcela’s low-latency application delivery platform through a simple physical or virtual AppHUB network connection. The Office 365 Accelerator then establishes a direct network connection between enterprise users and the optimal Microsoft peering points to transport Office 365 traffic across Apcela’s high-performance network. This results in improved application performance and security, with lower latency and no network congestion.

Additionally, Apcela customers can benefit by integrating the Office 365 Accelerator with the company’s broader portfolio of solutions for fast, secure global connectivity via its high-performance network; end-to-end network telemetry and performance monitoring with its AppSensor, cloud gateways, dedicated connectivity and integrated edge computing.
