Abstract

Our project was focused on Endicia's Label Server, which provides web services for generating shipping labels. Our goal was to improve the performance of the Label Server at geographically diverse locations. To achieve this goal, we developed a proxy server that could be deployed to various cloud locations. This proxy received compressed vector graphics from Endicia's data center in San Jose, and sent bitmap images back to the client. Using our proxy server, we reduced the response time by approximately 50%.
