Overcoming the Limits of TCP
Organizations rely heavily on WANs for application performance and data protection. However TCP, the underlying protocol used by most business applications, often does not utilize the WAN link completely to meet the organization’s goals; its effectiveness drops dramatically as the distance between endpoints increases and/or the quality of the WAN link drops.
Access this whitepaper to review the causes of poor TCP performance and why adding more bandwidth is not the solution you need. Discover the data transport requirements of the long-distance replication, periodic offsite backups, and data migrations critical for today’s data protection strategies. Additionally, learn more about a new switch that is the only solution available to accelerate TCP-based connections at speeds of 10 Gbps, regardless of distance by analyzing the approach to TCP congestion control and traffic management.
