QUIC Support in LiteSpeed Web Server https://www.litespeedtech.com/images/logos/litespeed/ls-quic-logo.png 2017-11-17 20:20:12 LiteSpeed Web Server supports QUIC. Learn what QUIC is, why you should use it, and how to deploy it.

QUIC: Quick UDP Internet Connections

LiteSpeed Web Server supports QUIC, a new protocol developed by Google. QUIC is currently in production across most of Google's services, and is enabled by default in the Chrome browser.

QUIC speeds up the web by providing unique approaches to classic latency problems.

QUIC is the next generation internet protocol. By replacing TCP with UDP, and encrypting the majority of its payload, QUIC reduces the time it takes to begin serving content by a factor of two or three, all while maintaining data security.

QUIC vs HTTP/2

What is QUIC?  More

QUIC is:

  • a new protocol developed by Google, currently undergoing standardization with the IETF's QUIC working group.
  • enabled by default in Chrome since August 2013 and recently made available in Opera.
  • the next generation internet protocol, designed to make up for the shortcomings of HTTP/2.
  • constructed with security in mind.
  • engineered to reduce latency due to handshake and packet loss.

Why use QUIC?  More

  • QUIC is Faster

    • Reduce connection-establishment time for a speedier page load.
    • Use multiplexing to avoid head-of-line blocking.
    • Improve congestion control and network efficiency for a better user experience.
    • Effectively handle connection migration in a highly-variable network environment.
  • QUIC is Secure

    • Application data and most of the protocol header is subjected to strong, tough-to-crack encryption.
  • QUIC is Available

    • More than half of the population of the web uses Chrome or Opera, and both browsers support QUIC.
    • Google has been using QUIC on its own sites for five years!
  • QUIC is COOL!

    • Why should Google have all of the fun? QUIC is the future. Be a part of it!
