Cisco Wide Area Application Services (WAAS) is a powerful application acceleration and WAN optimization solution that enables branch office server consolidation, performance improvements for centralized applications and services, and LAN-like service levels for remote users.

Distributed organizations face significant challenges in the deployment, management, and protection of remote office infrastructure, while at the same time needing to deliver increasingly rich application content and services to remote users. Performance and scalability constraints imposed by the Wide Area Network (WAN) directly impact the ability of a remote worker to maintain productivity, yet there is conflicting pressure to centralize distributed application and file services infrastructure into corporate data centers-where IT personnel and data protection infrastructure are readily available-for both economic and regulatory compliance reasons. Furthermore, enterprises are looking for ways to control the explosive growth in bandwidth requirements generated by new applications and business processes, while also improving throughput and responsiveness for existing applications in a transparent manner.

The Cisco Wide Area Application Services (WAAS) solution facilitates the consolidation of remote office application infrastructure and services back into the data center while providing LAN-like service levels that remote users are accustomed to. Cisco WAAS overcomes the performance barriers created by the WAN through a sophisticated combination of application acceleration and WAN optimization techniques that mitigate application and transport latency, improve throughput, and minimize WAN bandwidth consumption for any TCP-based application.

Deployment and management are also simplified through Cisco WAAS' transparent integration-both logically and physically-with the existing network, allowing preservation of existing network policies, automatic discovery across any network topology, and end-to-end visibility for ease of monitoring or troubleshooting. The result is a significantly lower total cost of ownership (TCO), greater application performance, more efficient WAN utilization and simplified data protection in an easy to implement package.
