WAN acceleration reduces the amount of traffic sent across the Wide Area Network (WAN) and delivers information locally whenever possible. This improves the costs associated with application delivery from staffing, infrastructure and facility costs to expenditures in application software and WAN bandwidth. In addition, WAN acceleration protects investments in business critical applications by ensuring that they meet end user performance objectives, and it minimizes risk of exposure by improving the performance and reliability of data backup, replication and recovery. As a result, WAN acceleration provides an extremely rapid return on investment, plus the intangible benefit of increased end user productivity and unsurpassed IT satisfaction.
