Description: GridJet: An underlying data-transporting protocol for accelerating Web communications The World-Wide Web provides us with a distributed, hyperlinked document repository. Users attempting to access and share these hyperlinked documents via conventional HTTP and FTP often encounter long waits and frustration. To provide “local-like” access, a WAN/Grid-optimized protocol known as “GridJet” was incorporated into the Firefox Web browser that utilizes a wide range of technologies including the one of paralleling the remote file access. No change in the way of using software is required since the multi-streamed GridJet protocol remains fully compatible with existing IP infrastructures. Peer-to-peer clustered Web servers are also constructed to remove the scalability limitations and management problems associated with individual Web servers. Our recent progress includes a real-world test that Web applications over the GridJet protocol beats those over the classic ones by as much as five times where the transfer distance is over 10 000 km
