We all want to speed up the performance of business critical applications over the WAN. But, is it realistic to do this one application at a time? Is there a more scalable approach for optimizing enterprise traffic that is application agnostic, version agnostic, and protocol agnostic? This session will identify the top challenges that affect application performance across the WAN and discuss how they can be solved using common network optimization techniques. In addition, it will provide specific examples of where network optimization is being used to enable strategic IT initiative, like disaster recovery, cloud, data center consolidation, and virtualization.
