I am currently working through a try and buy of the WAAS solution.
I have a data center connected via a T1 to a remote site. I have included an image of the test design. All three appliances are WAE-512's. As noted in the visio, I am using wccp for redirection.
As of now, CIFS optimization is great. I have been surprised at how well it works. To the user, being able to transfer a 50MB file over a T1 WAN link in a matter of 10 seconds is amazing.
The problem that I'm having is all other optimizations aside from CIFS. I can transfer a 3MB FTP file between sites multiple times, and it takes a minute each time. I would expect DRE to make the results similar to what I am experiencing with CIFS.
I am seeing the same lack of results with HTTP, backups, and any other bulk-data apps.
I forgot to include on the Visio that the WAES are version 4.0.11 b34.
Under the application policy's on the WAE's, I have the following:
VMware Trunk Port Group is supported from ACI version 2.1
VMM integration must be configured properly
ASA device package must be uploaded to APIC
ASAv version must be compatible with ACI and device package version
