Nitrosphere, is a software company that has developed NitroAccelerator to install as a device driver to significantly compress network traffic.
Nitrosphere's mission is to make user-friendly and low-maintenance software that reduces latency and bandwidth fees while improving throughput.
We make businesses operate more efficiently🚀by creating a simple yet powerful endpoint based software that allows networks to operate more efficiently.
The impact of our acceleration improves end-user experience, employee productivity, information advantage, and more.
Accelerate & Secure all SQL Server TDS Connections
Drastically improve SQL Server Replication speed
Improve Thick Clients / Client-Server / 2-Tiered Application user experience
Supercharge Daily Data Movement & SMB Windows File Transfers

Lower overhead. WAN accelerators can be very expensive with initial costs between two locations often coming in at around $30K, for cost-of-hardware alone. Companies often spend millions of dollars on WAN accelerators, whereas Nitrosphere customers can deploy a complete or selective solution for a fraction of the cost.
Improve reliability. Move to the cloud or perform critical backups with upwards of up to 96% compression.
Accelerate Securely. Reduce your attack surface by maintaining control of your endpoints. Visit security benefits for more info.
NitroAccelerator installs as a device driver on your desired servers and endpoints to significantly compress network traffic between connections.
NitroAccelerator optimizes the Tabular Data Stream (TDS) and Server Message Block (SMB) protocols to improve data transfer performance while reducing overall network traffic.
NitroAccelerator operates within existing TDS & SMB ports to eliminate the need for additional proxies or expensive hardware to quickly tune and deploy without the need for downtime.
Windows 2008 and later
Vista and later
2000 through 2019
LINUX It is possible to reduce latency by using a Linux system as an endpoint with Nitro installed to a Windows system as a proxy. Reach out to us for details.
For additional performance improvements while proving Nitro, we recommend the following:
Set network packet size to 32k, if possible.
NitroAccelerator must be installed on the administrator account of two systems to accelerate the connection between them.
NitroAccelerator is designed to work seamlessly in the client-server model. Any application that is leveraging the TDS protocol using MDAC, SQL Native Client, Java thin or thick drivers, or through any other implementation to connect to a SQL Server, such as SharePoint or SQL Management Studio, you can use NitroAccelerator to compress and optimize its traffic.
The Nitro team stays ahead of all windows updates and has recently added several new features to turbocharge performance.
Adaptive Compression dynamically adjusts TCP packet size to automatically reduce overall latency
Compression Levels can be configured to tune performance for specific environment
HyperCache securely minimizes the transfer of data between endpoints by storing cached data within individual kernels
Encryption secures network traffic between endpoints with configurable keys
Automatic Protocol Detection to support SMB Windows File Transfer and SQL Server Named Pipes
