Big-IP Wan Optimization Module Performance
Source: F5 Networks
An increasing amount of data is being transferred between data centers, driven by data replication and backup, storage requirements, and data center consolidation. The trend toward virtualization and cloud computing, while reducing IT costs and providing agility, also adds latency to application delivery. WAN optimization reduces the replication time and overcomes latency issues between data centers by optimizing and accelerating data over the WAN. These services are integrated directly on your F5 BIG-IP device and include superior adaptive compression, intelligent data de-duplication, protocol optimization, and traffic control capabilities that dramatically reduce data replication times and enable more efficient use of your existing bandwidth. Encryption of data over the WAN ensures to meet regulatory and security requirements when transferring business-critical information.
