Deploying Cisco Wide Area Application Services
<P>This is the eBook version of the printed book. If the print book includes a CD-ROM, this content is not included within the eBook version.</P>Deploying Cisco Wide Area Application Services, Second Edition brings together all the information network engineers need to design and deploy scalable, transparent application acceleration, WAN optimization, and branch virtualization solutions using Cisco Wide Area Application Services (WAAS) 4.1. This new edition has been thoroughly revised to reflect powerful recent enhancements to the WAAS software: improvements that enable far better performance, simplified workflow, and improved manageability. Zach Seils and Joel Christner -- both Cisco WAAS insiders -- illuminate major changes to the foundational components of WAAS' product architecture. These changes have made the latest version dramatically different from previous versions. They provide a solid foundation upon which WAAS will be based for years to come. Seils and Christner begin by reviewing the underlying technologies that make up the Cisco WAAS solution. From there, they show how to collect the requirements that WAAS solutions require; and walk through network integration, including device placement and interception techniques. Finally, the authors offer start-to-finish coverage of WAAS 4.1 software configuration, including central management, application traffic policies, monitoring and reporting, and virtualization.
