As the topic says does WAAS support acceleration of https traffic? If so where can I find this information?

Also and more importantly where can I find performance and scalability information (Max Opt tcp connections, WAN capacity etc.) for WAAS and WAVE devices?

HTTPS is currently only accelerated with TFO (no compression or AO) in WAAS 4.1.1 and before. HTTPS support is being introduced with a Application Optimizer in the upcoming release WAAS 4.1.3. 4.1.3 will allow optimization past TFO to include Full Optimization, etc.

Look for a late March release date with more information on the HTTPS AO as well as Scaling information at that time.

The current scalability numbers can be obtained from your partner and/or sales team, which would probably be the best way to review all the models.
