Delivering a use case
During your trial, we recommend activating NitroAccelerator on as many machines as possible over a trial period long enough to measure quantitative benefits over time.

Proof of Concept

The Nitrosphere team will work with you to ensure accelerated connections form and operate in the most optimized fashion possible to achieve and exceed your goals.
After activation of the trial, many aspects of the customer organization that rely on reliable and timely network data access and delivery will be improved.

Data-driven Performance Indicators

  • High-priority IT Support Ticket counts
  • Bandwidth usage and cloud fees
  • Critical hardware upgrade time horizon
  • Query Execution Times
  • Transactions Per Second (TPS)
  • Throughput (MB/sec)
  • Server I/O wait-time
  • Replication Backlog
  • Page load time
  • Application start time & performance
  • File Transfer time

Query Test

The NitroAccelerator Speed Test pings one of our test servers to run a few test queries. The purpose is to give you an estimate of the acceleration benefits that the software will have on your environment with default settings. We chose a simple Cartesian join because it mirrors the most accurate estimate of acceleration that our customers typically experience.
When your speed test completes, you will be asked if you want to share the results with the Nitrosphere team to assist with tuning and feature recommendations.

Client-server Application Performance Testing

  • Use SSMS to run a representative query from your application both with and without Nitro.
  • Measure application load time and common processes/queries.
  • Longer term testing is often recommended for the majority of use cases. The HyperCache feature learns and improves over time and helps dramatically accelerate chatty applications during traditional use.

Replication Testing

  • Measure Replication backlog decrease over time.
The Nitro team recommends collecting quantitative test data and is here to help with your proving process. Below is an example result.
Below are tests running DML and Queries. They are representative of a server-client benefit.
