Enterprises have long been battling the inherent performance limitations of Wide Area Networks (WANs) when delivering applications to remote offices. Caching emerged in the 1990’s as a potential way of addressing this problem, accelerating the performance of specific applications, such as web services, while reducing overall WAN traffic. While caching achieved reasonable success for a few short years, the market for these point products ultimately subsided as a result of several operational and functional limitations. Enterprises require an application acceleration solution that spans all types of traffic, one that is easy to manage, and 100% data coherency when supporting business-critical applications. This white paper will address these issues and offer a solution that addresses these enterprise requirements. The result is a complete solution for improved application delivery across a distributed enterprise environment.

Patton Harris and Rust and Associates has 13 branches. Management and IT needed a way to help these offices work on projects together to optimize company resources. Using GlobalSCAPE WAFS gave PHR+A fast file access across branches using minimal system resources. No management is required as it operates in the background and real time byte level differencing not only reduces bandwidth usage and spikes but also the changes are sent as they happen – not when they are needed.
Jordan & Skala Engineers is a growing company with 5 offices. It needed a scalable solution to optimize their network and their resources as more and more work was distributed across sites. Using GlobalSCAPE WAFS files mirror instantly in real time using byte-level differencing. So as soon as a file is saved or closed, the file deltas appear in every other location on the network. Users are never waiting for files to upload, download, or open across a network.
Disaster can strike when you least expect it. So how do you back up and maintain control of your data and still provide access to data in a distributed organization? The challenges are clear...large and growing amounts of data need to be distributed across many sites yet complications such as bandwidth usage, file coherence, version consistency, and file latency all result in lost productivity.

Today, data volumes are growing exponentially and organizations of every size are struggling to manage what has become a very expensive and complex problem. It causes real issues such as:
• Overprovisioning their backup infrastructure to anticipate rapid future growth.
• Legacy systems can’t cope and backups take too long or are incomplete.
• Companies miss recovery point objectives and recovery time targets.
• Backups overload infrastructure and network bandwidth.
• Not embracing new technologies, such as cloud backup, because there is too much data to transfer over wide area networks.

Data connectivity has long been a necessity for enterprises big and small, as has the need to use that connectivity to extend enterprise Local Area Network (LAN) across networks. But the process of building an enterprise Wide Area Network (WAN) is anything but easy.
The Cisco Intelligent WAN (IWAN) solution provides design and implementation guidance for organizations looking to deploy wide area network (WAN) transport with a transport-independent design (TID), intelligent path control, application optimization, and secure encrypted communications between branch locations while reducing the operating cost of the WAN. IWAN takes full advantage of cost-effective transport services in order
to increase bandwidth capacity without compromising performance, reliability, or security of collaboration or
IT has gone through a significant evolution over the past decade. Virtualization has changed
the entire face of the data center, the network edge has become predominantly wireless and
consumer devices reign supreme. However, one of the few areas of IT that has yet to evolve is
the corporate wide area network (WAN). Managing the WAN is something network managers
have always struggled with because WAN speeds are typically an order of magnitude, or more,
slower than local area networks (LANs).
To better understand the benefits, costs, and risks associated with Cisco TrustSec, Forrester interviewed two companies. Company A is an organization that provides senior housing for over 22,000 residents in the US. This organization used Cisco TrustSec to provide highly secure segmented mobile network services to its residents. Company B is an international packaging and paper group company experiencing rapid growth. It used Cisco TrustSec as an innovative solution to quickly integrate the infrastructure of new acquisitions into its own and standardize security architecture across its wide area network (WAN) globally. While the case study will talk about the experiences of these two companies, the financial analysis focuses on the impact that Cisco TrustSec had on one organization.

The need to understand how the performance and problems within the technical infrastructure impacts the capabilities of the business is massive. However, the majority of companies can only measure application and specific asset performance, whereas many issues within the infrastructure lie at the transport level, where packet switching presents both great opportunities and major issues.
