I want to deploy WAAS between a head office and a DR site, they will either connect through a private WAN or the Internet. A requirement is for the traffic to be encrypted and as such IPSEC VTIs will be used to enable routing as there will also be a back up link. I am thinking that traffic would be optimized before it is routed and passed through the tunnel. Is that the case? Can this work?

Traffic will receive full optimization if WAEs installed within network prior to data encryption.

As long as the tunnel is between the two WAN edge devices and stripped prior to delivery then it will be okay.

If not then the level of optimization will include TFO and LZ compression.
