They Own the Pipes. You Own the Water.

Author: Bryce Howard.

Network service latency can introduce significant delays in a site that at first glance seems out of your control. Tuning the site is useful, but how can the number of round trips be reduced? Bryce Howard’s 50 minute talk at Surge 2012 goes into deep detail of low-level networking protocols to address ways of dropping the round trip requirements. He eliminated the need for a new data centre for a Tax Service site by improving speed 500% by dropping the number of round trips from 6 to 1 per request. While the round trip time (RTT) is more-or-less fixed, it is possible to drop the number of round trips which can result in a tremendous improvement to time to first (and last) byte.

A site that has a number of simple polygonal bitmapped graphics can be lightened considerably.
