Cisco WAAS: Setting the Record Straight

There has been recent speculation on Cisco’s WAAS business, but let’s set the record straight: to paraphrase Mark Twain, rumors of WAAS’ demise have been greatly exaggerated. Cisco is fully committed to the WAAS business.  We have made some changes in our go-to-market approach, but our engineering teams remain fully engaged and working against our long term roadmap to drive application awareness into the network. To better leverage the capabilities of the teams, Cisco integrated the WAAS teams directly into our access router group, which now allows us to leverage a large set of developers and to focus on our Cloud Intelligent Network architecture, Cloud Connect Solutions and the L4-7 technologies which support the cloud transition.

Cisco’s continued commitment to WAN Optimization (WAAS) Market and Our Customers

WAN Optimization is an essential element of Cisco’s network-centric platform strategy, enabling key transitions such as data center consolidation, virtualization, cloud, virtual desktops and BYOD. Cisco is continuing to invest in the Wide Area Application Services (WAAS) portfolio to drive our strategy of integrating WAN Optimization into the network fabric to achieve unmatched scale, performance, and simplicity, while reducing overall customer TCO. The WAAS team is an integral part of Cisco’s Enterprise Networking Group to help achieve these goals.

Recent speculation that Cisco has dissolved its WAAS business is inaccurate. Cisco’s strategy to deliver WAAS pervasively as part of the Cisco WAN infrastructure remains unchanged.

Consistent with the strategy of providing application optimization as a key function of the network infrastructure, Cisco provides a broad portfolio of appliances, router-integrated and virtualized form factors. Strong alignment between the WAAS and Services Routing Group (SRG) product development teams has helped drive innovations such as AppNav with WAVE appliances for data centers, Cloud Services Routers with virtual WAAS for public clouds and highly scalable router-integrated form factors. Cisco accelerates a wide variety of applications including file, email, web, secure applications, SaaS, virtual desktops and cloud services.
