We're looking at potentially doing an 80+ site WAAS deployment and I was wondering if anyone out there had already gone down this path. We'd have about 70 branch office sites with 512-2's, 8 big regional offices with 612's, and two 7341's at the corporate DC's.
Branch offices connect to the WAN with 2821's and single (or sometimes dual) T1's. Regional branches have 2821's and two or three data T1's, and the DC's have 3845's with 45Mbps DS3's.
There are file servers everywhere, with no expectation of replacing/removing any (yet), and -plenty- of cross-WAN any-to-any file server access with daily multi-megabyte/gigabyte) data transfers.
My primary concern is scalability, especially with regards to the per-peer data caches and how quickly data gets flushed out. Overall manageability and ability to support the solution are also a concern.
Any and all comments would be greatly appreciated.
