This paper outlines the essential requirements for file sharing across a wide-area network (WAN), and briefly discusses the limitations of appliance-based WAN optimization when applied specifically to document collaboration. The paper uses a solution analysis to compare common business needs to required features, and explains how appliance-based optimization falls short of these needs. The paper then describes how Globalscape's software-only solution. (WAFS) provides file replication and collaboration across globally dispersed networks, securely and reliably, with the performance of local file sharing.

Class of Service (CoS) functionality can help optimize network performance. For a successful deployment, network designers should identify all applications, understand requirements associated with each application, designate appropriate mapping for groups of applications and provide mechanisms in the underlying network to deliver CoS. CoS mapping and deployment are important; adhering to tested strategies and avoiding common misconceptions helps IT managers advance optimization across the wide area network.
