White paper | Making Applications Fly Over the WAN for Superior Remote Access
The hyper growth in the number of globally dispersed remote and mobile workers has forced CIOs to rethink the ways in which they deliver applications over the WAN. Traditional WAN acceleration solutions simply cannot keep up with the pace of change, and they do little to serve the wide range of remote access points that today’s mobile workers use.
At the same time, application usage by remote users continues to grow. Global instances of ERP, CRM, and other enterprise applications as well as new social and mobile applications are must-have enablers for many remote and mobile workers.
This paper discusses the growing need for WAN acceleration solutions that provide flexibility beyond that of hardware-based solutions. It also describes our unique approach to addressing the challenges in delivering dynamic, web-based, mission critical, enterprise applications to remote users anywhere in the world.
Some key topics explored in this whitepaper include:
- Challenges with hardware-based WAN Acceleration
- Datacenter consolidation complications
- Recognizing performance problems
- On-Demand network acceleration
- Enabling remote and mobile uses
From the whitepaper:
“With WAN traffic growth comes a proportional need to refresh and/or upgrade IT infrastructure to support the additional traffic. Many WAN infrastructure vendors heavily promoted WAN acceleration appliances to help CIOs overcome the traffic problem. However, an appliance-based approach does little to handle end-user requests that originate from multiple, changing locations. WAN appliances work well for improving traffic conditions between major office sites. But their value proposition deteriorates when examining the end-user experience of mobile workers, small office workers, and/or home-based workers. For this reason, WAN acceleration hardware vendors have pushed their products hard for the better part of a decade but have only penetrated 11% of the market.”
