Exploring the Fundamental Differences Between Network Memory and Application
Enterprises have long been battling the inherent performance limitations of Wide Area Networks (WANs) when delivering applications to remote offices. Caching emerged in the 1990’s as a potential way of addressing this problem, accelerating the performance of specific applications, such as web services, while reducing overall WAN traffic. While caching achieved reasonable success for a few short years, the market for these point products ultimately subsided as a result of several operational and functional limitations. Enterprises require an application acceleration solution that spans all types of traffic, one that is easy to manage, and 100% data coherency when supporting business-critical applications. This white paper will address these issues and offer a solution that addresses these enterprise requirements. The result is a complete solution for improved application delivery across a distributed enterprise environment.
