Bandwidth Throttling: Know Your Options
Bandwidth throttling has been around for some time and depending on what end of the service you reside on, your experience can vary widely. There is no reason to debate the need for bandwidth throttling: spreading a data load over a wider connection to reduce local network congestion or spreading it over a number of servers to avoid overloading individual ones. However, there is an ongoing debate about how the elastic service should be provided. Either way there is usually one common denominator: organizations are looking for performance beyond expectations.
