Taking Application Delivery to New Heights
Top 10 considerations for Scaling a WAN acceleration solution
Security and compliance concerns are creating increased pressure to remove data out of branch offi ces and to implement robust business continuity plans. At the same time, new WAN acceleration technologies have emerged that deliver order of magnitude performance improvements across a wide breadth of applications.

As WAN acceleration becomes more critical to business operations, the average size and scope of deployment is steadily increasing. This creates a variety of questions pertaining to product scalability. What happens when new applications are deployed? How easy and cost effective is it to add new offi ces? How is performance affected by network load? Do higher capacity WAN links behave the same as lower capacity links?
