I found the data sheet that describes the size of the two boxes, and lots of other statistics, but no throughput stats. Is the main difference between the 7341 and 7371 the memory and hard drive cache size?
Our data center headend WAE will be L2 connected to a redundant pair of 6506 distribution switches with gig uplinks.
I need to make sure I get the right device that can handle gig throughput of redirected accelerated traffic . Will the 7371 handle that?
Kindly follow the below link and download pdf and see page no 12 for optimized tcp connections and 19 for your throughput answers for WAE-7341 and WAE-7371 appliances .

MAXIMUM SUPPORTED PEERS PER WAE
The WAE-7341 and WAE-7371 appliances provide the following features and benefits:
Allows the appliance to continue operating with one drive in a non-functioning state for increased reliability.
Provides increased logical disk capacity.
Disk hot-swap capability
No downtime when removing or installing hard disk drives.
Allows a larger memory footprint for the TCP Proxy application and increases the number of concurrent optimized connections for increased scalability and performance.
300-GB SAS1 hard disk drives
4 x 300 GB in the WAE-7341
6 x 300 GB in the WAE-7371
Allows you to monitor, analyze, and control the RAID status through the CLI and view basic disk status in the RAID from the Central Manager GUI.
1 SAS = Serial Attached SCSI
