Virtual WAN Optimization in Diverse Networks
WAN Optimization has moved to a tightly integrated "virtual WAN Optimization solution" to meet the needs of a mobile and remote workforce.
An article on TMCnet.com discusses the fact that WAN Optimization needs are becoming more complex. End users and data server centers are often far apart physically, and the performance of items delivered over the WAN can be adversely impacted as a result. This issue is being addressed by deploying WAN Optimization solutions that are tightly integrated, which allows for better control and optimization.
"To address the performance and productivity challenges of an increasingly mobile and remote workforce, including virtualized environments, WAN Optimization has moved from a tactical style deployment to a tightly integrated virtual WAN Optimization solution for greater control and optimization of business critical applications across distributed Enterprise infrastructures."
