Optimize NetApp SnapMirror Over the WAN With Cisco Wide Area Application Services
Source: Cisco Systems
Cisco WAAS provides considerable performance improvement for the NetApp SnapMirror application over the WAN by optimizing bandwidth and accelerating TCP flows. The tests results illustrated in this paper demonstrate a 10X improvement in NetApp SnapMirror replication time when using Cisco WAAS in replication accelerator mode. The results also demonstrate that Cisco WAAS improves the bandwidth utilization efficiency of NetApp SnapMirror over the WAN and allows it to operate at peak capacity.
