We're looking to consolidate our IT infrastructure into our datacenter and are looking at the WAAS solution for WAN optimisation and app acceleration. I have a couple of queries that I can't easily find answers too.
1 I've found performance data for the NME-WAE-502-K9 (500 concurrent TCP connections and around 5 Mbps optimized traffic). However, I can't find relative performance data for the 512 and 612 WAEs. Does anyone have this info (real world stats would be ideal)? - A number of our remote sites have BW of 10Mbps and 100Mbps..
2 I'm still not clear on the features of the Central Manager license; I know that a CM is required within a WAAS solution. I'm looking at putting a pair of WAE-612s into the datacenter (100Mbps connection) and am not sure if I should have both with the CM license - Does the CM license include the functionality of the Enterprise (e.g. App acceleration, CIFS etc) or should I have one with CM and the other with Ent license and then will this work as redundant pair?
Thanks in advance..
