  6. 6. YottaServe © Zeus Technology 2008 Slide “ We were able to demonstrate that placing the load balancer in front of the application transformed the number of concurrent users from ten into thousands – with no application modifications needed.” Jeff Rhys-Jones, Founder, YottaServe Initial application tests show that response times rose sharply - up to over 100 seconds for a page request, as the number of users were ramped up to a test version of the website in the lab After application acceleration and traffic optimization, response times were less than 100 milliseconds - a complete performance transformation
