F5 Networks Case Study: Brown Shoe

Brown Shoe is a leading consumer-driven footwear company, operating nearly 1,300 retail shoe stores throughout the U.S. and Canada. The company was looking to implement a real-time disaster recovery strategy to enable their large number of retail stores to continue operation in the event of a data center failure. The company turned to WANJet to accelerate the AS/400 replication of data between its two data centers, while dramatically lowering bandwidth requirements. With WANJet increasing the bandwidth capacity by 1000%, the retailer was able to use a 7 Mbps link instead of upgrading to 90 Mbps, achieving a hard dollar ROI in less than three months.
