Application Acceleration Challenge: The Paper
 

Whether you use the term "Application Acceleration" or "WAN Optimization," the important thing is that it works. The many recent customer implementation success stories and a recent test prove the point. Depending on the application, you can expect reduction in bandwidth of between 30% and 95% with 70% to 90% the norm, and, in addition, you can cut response time by a factor of three to five times. What this means is that application acceleration is ready to go mainstream and be deployed throughout the enterprise. The issue is shifting from "Does the technology work?" to "Which vendor provides the best solution that can deployed in large scale throughout the enterprise?" The goal of the Challenge is give each vendor a chance to tell you why their solution is the best one to deploy.

 

In this Challenge, it is not expected that each of the responding companies - Cisco, Packeteer, Riverbed, Certeon, and Juniper - answers every question or addresses every issue. Rather, the companies were asked to address what they consider the most important issue and give you an idea on how they approach the problems. If you like one vendorís answers, use this information to challenge the other vendors to explain how they answer it and why their solution is just as good or better. The goal is to educate you so you can ask better questions. At the end of each section, the vendorís contact information is provided, and you can find more information about the technology and their solutions on their web sites.
