Hi All,

Base on my understanding, we can run CM on 274 appliance with enterprise license. my question is: if company wants to save money and use 274 as AA, is it possible to implement waas 4.1 solution without even have CM? or CM is the mandatory piece of design?

The use of a Central manager is not required to accelerate traffic. However, without, you will not have access statistics reporting, CM software updates, GUI configuration and more.

All AA will have a default policy, but will need to use CLI to implement any advanced features. Highly recommended to utilize a CM in optimization environment as number of site deployments grow. Without CM each branch / core node needs to be administered individually as opposed to centrally using group policies.

Taking the cost into effect of admin for each device vs. ~6k for a manager kind of pays for itself.

The WAVE274 allows for up to 1000 managed devices.
