Abstract: 

Cloud computing promises to deliver potential gains in efficiency and cost savings by consolidating IT assets into public and private data centers. Virtualization technologies allow migration of virtual machines and data into and out of Cloud infrastructures. However, cloud-hosted information assets must still be accessed by users over existing WAN infrastructures, where there are performance issues due to bandwidth and latency constraints.

Learning Objectives

Learn how WAN optimization is one of the key--and often overlooked--technology component necessary for the adoption of cloud computing.
Understand the WAN-related performance problems and how they impact adoption of Cloud Computing technologies.
Learn how WAN optimization can facilitate the deployment and operation of Public and Private Clouds.
