Application Delivery Networks!

January 24, 2008 - 0 Comments

This week Cisco introduced the Application Delivery Network to the press and analyst corps as well as our key European customers at Networkers 2008 in Barcelona. This architectural approach to application delivery showcases how the network can sense changes in application requirements and dynamically adjust resource allocation to meet changes in demands. It also clearly highlighted how Cisco can understand applications at a message-passing level and link this deep insight to load balancing at the flow level and end-to-end transit at the packet level.Possibly even more impactful is the tremendous support garnered from top application partners- for each key application we have tested, documented, and profiled how to enhance the applications performance through a variety of integrated network-based tools from WAN optimization to TCP Offload in the ACE Family.We also introduced the ACE Appliance a 1-2Gb Application Delivery Controller that has the best price-performance in its class and the WAAS Mobile Client -extending the reach of WAN Optimization to the mobile worker and telecommuter.What do we need to build next?
