Yesterday, Campbell, CA-based Fineground Networks announced that Walgreens has implemented their Condensor application accelerator product.
Fineground was founded by Nat Kausik, a good friend who also founded Arcot Systems. Nat invented the approach that is implemented in the Condensor suite. It’s a very cool software application that gets placed between the network and the web server within an enterprise. Condensor then dynamically monitors the network traffic (HTML data) flowing between the server and client browsers — and transparently compresses the data so that network bandwidth requirements are minimized and response times are significantly improved — without any desktop, application or web server changes required. The privately held company is backed by New Enterprise Associates and Worldview Technology Partners.
