OCI Load Balancers provides the ability to improve web performance even further with the introduction of Web Application Acceleration. This feature decreases latency between the client and the web server by using two functions on the load balancer, caching and compression.

Caching will store content retrieved from the back web server on the load balancer. Reducing the need for the client to retrieve this data from the backend web server and relieving system load on the server. Compression improves performance even further by reducing the size of web content that is delievered to the client over the network. This compressed content is delivered in gzip format.
