WAAS Content Store

Answered Question
Oct 15th, 2009

Hi All,

One of the major arguments used by Riverbed is that it provides a single data store for all peer devices on a steelhead appliance, whereas WAAS creates separate data stores for each peer.

Is this still the case or not?

I have this problem too.

Andrew,

You are correct and this has not changed. I've been involved with deploying WAAS since it was released by Cisco and have heard that as a line for years in the marketing FUD fliers being sent around.

From a technical perspective, in my large deployments of 100s and 1000s of boxes, this really hasn't been an issue to date. It is just that, FUD...
