A Flexible Cloud-Based Solution For E-commerce To Boost Website Performance
Get your website closer to your target audience with your own dedicated edge server network — and scale your performance as you grow.
Customizable and on-demand. With automatic optimisations using an AI engine, it allows for the quick and strategic transfer of assets needed for loading e-commerce websites
Easy Setup In a Few Steps
An Edge Accelerator Network is a geographically distributed group of edge servers which work together to provide fast delivery of Internet content using ShimmerCat. It allows for the quick and strategic transfer of assets needed for fast-loading e-commerce websites.
1. Decide on server locations
based on your web traffic
Create a custom made edge server network tailored for the specific web traffic of your domains. Highly customizable with the cloud provider of your choice.
2. Install ShimmerCat
on the selected servers
Here we simply use automatic Ansible recipes. This step also includes load balancer setup.
3. Configuration and pre-checks
customize it to you needs
For the setup, we usually do not need any specific info from the application owner. Pre-checks are made for the website to test that everything works as expected.
4. Change DNS and go live!
Enjoy automatic optimizations
When everything is ready, the application owner can simply change the DNS to the ShimmerCat edge servers, or if they want, create a setup where a proportion of the web traffic is directed there.
Automatic and data-driven
Enjoy intelligent performance optimizations based on your actual visitor data
Bots account for a large amount of traffic in many of our customer’s sites. The problem is that they take resources and make the site slow.
By having machine-learning separate bad bots from good bots and human visitors, ShimmerCat can allocate more resources to human visitors to make the website load faster for them.
Images account for much of the loading time on websites. This is why optimizing them through compression is strongly recommended.
ShimmerCat's image optimization differentiates itself from many other services since it is tailored for e-commerce sites to serve quality checked next-gen image formats, including WEBP, JPEG2000 and AVIF.
Send assets over latency
With HTTP/2 Push you can use the time-to-first-byte (TTFB) — otherwise spent on waiting — to deliver website resources faster to your visitors.
This means you can actually boost performance by using the latency to send assets.
