WAAS 7341 used for Caching servers in the Data Center?

Unanswered Question

I have A substantial start on a global WAAS delployemnt with 60+

sites and counting. We are looking at leveraging the WAE-7341's running WAAS 4.1.5x

to perform an internet cacheing solution in out Internet gateway locations globally.

Typically, WAAS works in pairs. So My question is is for a NON-WAAS site, can the WAE perform as a Caheing server for site that dont have WAAS?

ACNS software coudl run in the same hardware but My understanding is this software is being phased out in leiu of WAAS.

Any thoughts or comments on this?

I have this problem too.

Hi Todd,

WAAS requires a peer in order to optimize traffic.  As you mentioned, ACNS is a viable one-sided solution for Internet proxy caching.  I haven't heard anything about ACNS being discontinued.  In fact, you can even run ACNS as a virtual blade on WAAS.
