Why Centralizing Microsoft Servers Hurts Performance
sponsored by Juniper Networks, Inc.

Although economic and regulatory conditions will continue to drive server centralization and data center consolidation, this can debilitate the performance of vital applications. Among the applications most affected are Word, PowerPoint, Excel and other Microsoft applications using Microsoft's Common Internet File System (CIFS) file sharing protocol, as well as Outlook which uses Microsoft's Messaging Applications Programming Interface (MAPI) email protocol for Exchange.

This paper explains why performance of CIFS and MAPI-based applications degrades with distance and provides analyst recommendations to fix the problem. If your users are complaining of slow Microsoft performance, and you're looking at potential solutions, including increased bandwidth, WAFS, WAN optimization, WAN acceleration, protocol acceleration, etc., you'll garner valuable insight and recommendations for your project.
