Accelerating File Services Across the WAN

Accelerating File Services Across the WAN

Cover

Microsoft’s Common Internet File System (CIFS) is the underlying protocol used to transport files between servers and clients (users) throughout the enterprise. CIFS is the most commonly used file sharing protocol in today’s networks. It facilitates the transport of Microsoft Office application files (e.g., Word, Excel, PowerPoint), as well as virtually any stored files that users need to access -- including CAD files and graphics. However, CIFS performs poorly across WAN links due to higher latency.

The solution to solve the CIFS problem is to apply several WAN optimization technologies working together to quickly and easily restore application performance, improve response time, and recover WAN bandwidth—all without having to continue the cycle of costly WAN upgrades.
