Cloud based WAN Acceleration

WAN acceleration technology has been widely used for years to accelerate traffic across wide area networks. These accelerators use local caches to improve data access and performance. Though WAN acceleration has been available for years, it’s time for it to evolve. Today’s cloud-based applications coupled with a mobile workforce demand performance improvements. At the same time, virtualization requires additional bandwidth.

While it is possible to purchase additional bandwidth or invest in WAN appliances, doing so is costly and IT budgets are not exactly overflowing these days. In addition, in an attempt to keep budgets under control, reduce power consumption, and reduce data center sprawl, many organizations prefer cloud-based and virtualization solutions over hardware purchases.

Opting for cloud-based WAN acceleration over WAN appliances allows businesses of all sizes and budgets to improve WAN and application performance without the capital expense of WAN appliances. Cloud-based WAN optimization optimizes data paths across the network as well as across the Internet, allowing for more reliable connections, improved application performance, and improved network latency.
