Re: Cisco WAAS

Without writing a book, WAAS uses TCP optimization and compression for all TCP traffic that is redirected to it. Also, on top of the basic TCP optimizations, there are also Layer 7 Application Optimization(AO). Currently in 4.0 there is a CIFS AO, but in future releases (4.1.x), there will be more AOs for things like HTTP, NFS, RTSP, etc.

Check out the following for a little more detail...

Hope that helps,

Re: Cisco WAAS

Hi Dan,

You might have mentioned the book which recently Zach wrote. ;-)

Here it is:

Deploying Cisco Wide Area Application Services (Networking Technology) (Hardcover)

by Zach Seils (Author), Joel Christner (Author).

Parthiban, I own it and recommend it to everyone who is tasked with deploying Cisco WAAS.

Hope this helps.

Best,

Paul
