					Benefits And Features Of WAN Optimization Controller

The overall percentage of application traffic that transits the WAN increases once the use of software as a service
and other kinds of private and public cloud computing too increases. The interest for WAN optimization products
and vendors is generated by the fact that multiple enterprises have resorted to applications from their branch
offices and have combined them into centralized data centers.

Today WAN optimization or the WAN optimization controllers (WOC) is a flourishing technology that assists a wide
variety of enterprises to manage and enhance the network efficiency that in turn improves the overall
performance and minimizes expenses. This can also help enterprise’s to boost up their sustainability by server
consolidation and data centers.

Benefits of WAN Optimization Controllers
They are beneficial for a business as they improve the application performance that function over the WAN and
minimize WAN bandwidth expense. Furthermore, WAN optimization controllers enhance the performance by:

            Minimizing the impact of incompetent network protocols such as TCP and the percentage of data
             over the WAN by executing functionality like compressing and caching
            Securing traffic that is sensitive to delays and crucial to businesses from being impacted by other
             kinds of traffic with the deployment of mechanisms like traffic shaping and service quality
            Executing specific application optimization that helps to boost the performance of the high end
             protocols and applications such as Messaging Application Program Interface, HTTP, Share Point and
             CIFS.

Sectioning the WAN Optimization Market
The way to segment the WAN optimization market is to assess the WOC’s scope to provide the optimization
between the following data centers:

            Branch offices and data center
            Remote users and one or more data centers
            Disparate data centers

Today eminent solution providers of load balancers have introduced advanced WAN optimization controllers that
use a mix of network acceleration, application acceleration, caching, packet compression and protocol
optimization to pace up acceleration and bring down the expense of offering applications across wide area
networks. Characterized by innovative stream-based differencing and application acceleration blueprints, these
WAN optimization controllers are designed with an aim to make WAN based applications function as if they are on
the LAN. Furthermore, WOC’s are capable of leveraging a wide range of optimization techniques for instance TCP
acceleration, web application optimization, secure acceleration, business traffic prioritization and network
optimization. Therefore, implementing high-end and advanced WOC’s helps organizations’ to ensure a premium
application experience for every user and attain quick ROI by minimizing the entire bandwidth expenses.
