Recommended Design for WAAS in both Data center and Branch Offices

Hi All,

I need to purchase different appliances for WAAS, but before I decide what to purchase, I need to know exactly how I am going to put these devices so that I can know which one to purchase and how the designs will be.

My environment is as follows:

I have two core routers (ASR 1000 series) at Data center, two 6509 switches (expecting to insert the ACE module, and FW module) and the I have access switches which connects servers.

At the branch offices, I am expecting to place ASR1000 series also.

Now, I need to know the recommended designs for these WAAS appliances so that, I can know in advance what to purchase(i.e. how many WAAS CM, Core WAE, and Edge WAE).

Any input will highly be appreciated.



Re: Recommended Design for WAAS in both Data center and Branch O

If you purchase the Standard Edition, your license supports:

One installation of Cisco Security Manager on one Windows-based server.

The configuration or management of 5 devices (in the Standard-5 option) or 25 devices (in the Standard-25 option). This excludes Catalyst 6500 and 7600 Series devices and their associated service modules.

If you purchase either the Standard-5 or Standard-25 license, you cannot purchase an incremental device license. Your license is fixed at either 5 or 25 devices.
