Executive Summary

Cisco Wide Area Application Services (WAAS) is a powerful application acceleration and WAN optimization solution that optimizes the performance of TCP-based applications operating in a WAN environment This optimization allows IT organizations to consolidate costly branch-office servers and storage in centrally managed data centers and to deploy new applications directly from the data center while offering LAN-like application performance for any employee, regardless of location. In a typical WAN-optimized deployment, the interception of application traffic obscures the response time, data transfer time, and other performance metrics; hence the traditional monitoring techniques fail to accurately characterize the impact of optimization.
