WAAS with iSCSI & FCIP

Dear Sir,

We have 2 data centers, and use iSCSI or FCIP protocol as the storage to storage communication protocol between 2 data centers. Due to low bandwidth between 2 data centers, we hope to use WAAS to accelerate ( maybe optimize or compress ) iSCSI & FCIP traffic. Does the WAAS functions ( accelerate, optimize or compress ... ) works for iSCSI & FCIP protocol?

Best Regards,

Jackson Ku

Re: WAAS with iSCSI & FCIP

Jackson,

WAAS has a specific mode (called Replication Accelerator) that is intended for optimizing storage replication protocols. You can find more information about this mode here:

If you have any additional questions, please let us know.

Re: WAAS with iSCSI & FCIP

Does anyone know why Replication mode is only supported in 4.0. not 4.1?

I know 4.1 has made performance improvements, but has the Replication mode been ditched as a result of that?

I've never heard of a key feature being removed in later versions of software before.
