How to Deploy QUIC

QUIC fits easily into your existing infrastructure using LiteSpeed Web Server or LiteSpeed Web ADC.

Deploy simply with a LiteSpeed license, a trusted certificate, and an easy firewall configuration.


LiteSpeed QUIC can be deployed to your infrastructure in a number of ways.


You can replace your web server with LiteSpeed Web Server. LiteSpeed is an Apache drop-in replacement.


You can replace your load balancer in front of a cluster with LiteSpeed WebADC. Web ADC has advanced features like cross data center replication, cache acceleration, high availability, and more.


You can set up a cache-accelerated front-end proxy with either LSWS or WebADC, without major surgery to existing infrastructure.
