Preposition HTTP Content with Cisco WAAS
If you manage a WAN and support multiple locations, you are probably familiar with Cisco Wide Area Acceleration Services (WAAS) as a solution to costly bandwidth upgrades and latency issues. Since WAAS accelerates and caches content over the WAN and achieves branch consolidation, your management has probably decided that you should use this tool.
By using WAAS, you have achieved the goal of consolidating network devices and reduced or eliminated thenumber of file servers needed at each branch. Users can now experience a “LAN-like” performance on their data transfers from the Data Center.
