Is there a page in Cisco where everything is explained from design to implementation? I have going around Cisco web page and all i can see are data sheets, client success stories, etc. no notes on explaining how it works and how to implement one.
Also, would it be possible to deploy WAAS (WAE) without a central manager to multiple sites? From what i have read, it is a requirement.
Thanks in advance.
WAAS will optimize traffic without a central manager providing applications to be optimized fall within the default application policy. However, having a Central Manager provides device group configuration, software upgrades, reporting and more. As the WAAS deployment grows, having a central manager allows for simpler configuration and reporting.
It is highly recommended to deploy a central manager as well as best practice.
