Design and deploy Cisco WAN optimization and application acceleration solutions for the enterprise WAN

 

Today, IT organizations are increasingly squeezed by competing demands. They must support more distributed users who demand greater availability and performance. They must protect their digital assets with far more robust security. And they must do it all while gaining far greater control over cost. Distributing IT resources increases management, hardware, and software overhead, but centralizing IT can worsen application performance. There is a solution to this quandary: Cisco application acceleration and WAN optimization technologies that permit IT to safely centralize distributed IT resources, meeting user performance expectations without replacing existing network infrastructure.

 

Deploying Cisco Wide Area Application Services is the first comprehensive guide to designing and deploying solutions with these Cisco technologies. Zach Seils and Joel Christner show how to deploy Cisco WAAS in a scalable, transparent, and seamless fashion that responds to both your business and technical challenges. Writing for network design and implementation engineers and other networking professionals, they cover the entire planning and configuration process. Drawing on their extensive experience implementing WAAS in the enterprise, they also offer real-world implementation examples and case studies–including full chapters on network, branch office, and data center integration.

 

Zach Seils, CCIE No. 7861, is a technical leader in the Cisco Advanced Services Data Center Networking Practice, where he specializes in designing, deploying, and troubleshooting application acceleration solutions for the largest Cisco enterprise and service provider customers.

 

Joel Christner, CCIE No. 15311, is director of product management for Reconnex Corporation, the industry leader in data loss prevention (DLP) solutions. Prior to Reconnex, Joel was senior manager of technical marketing for the Application Delivery Business Unit (ADBU) at Cisco, where he helped drive the product and technical strategy for Cisco Wide Area Application Services. Christner is coauthor of Application Acceleration and WAN Optimization Fundamentals.

From the Back Cover:

Implement advanced WAN optimization, application acceleration, and branch virtualization with Cisco WAAS 4.1

 

 

This book brings together all the information you need to design and deploy scalable, transparent application acceleration, WAN optimization, and branch virtualization solutions with dramatically improved Wide Area Application Services (WAAS) 4.1 products from Cisco®.

 

Cisco WAAS insiders Joel Christner, Zach Seils, and Nancy Jin systematically cover new WAAS software enhancements that enable far better performance, simplified workflow, and improved manageability. They introduce powerful new solution components including application-specific acceleration techniques, hardware form factors, and virtualization. They also thoroughly explain recent architectural improvements that provide a solid foundation for future WAAS solutions.

 

The authors begin by reviewing the underlying technologies that comprise today’s Cisco WAAS solution. Next, drawing on extensive personal experience, they walk through collecting requirements, designing effective solutions, integrating WAAS into existing networks, and configuring WAAS 4.1 software.

 

This book is replete with real-world implementation examples and case studies– including extensive coverage of network, branch office, and data center integration. One step at a time, you’ll learn how to deploy Cisco WAAS in a scalable, transparent, and seamless fashion: one that addresses both your business and technical challenges.

  • Thoroughly understand WAAS 4.1’s capabilities, and learn how to use and manage it effectively
  • Understand both the Cisco WAAS appliance and router-integrated network module hardware family
  • Quickly deploy WAAS in lab or production pilot environments to quantify its potential benefits
  • Size, design, and deploy Cisco WAAS for maximum performance and value in your enterprise network
  • Compare and select design options for branch office and data center network integration
  • Deploy the WAAS Central Manager and accelerator WAAS devices
  • Implement centralized authentication, authorization, alarm management, monitoring, and reporting
  • Configure WAN optimization with the Application Traffic Policy Manager
  • Configure, verify, and manage application acceleration
