Abstract: 

Cloud computing promises to deliver potential gains in efficiency and cost savings by consolidating IT assets into public and private data centers. 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. Learn how WAN optimization is one of the key--and often overlooked--technology component necessary for the adoption of cloud computing.

Learning Objectives

• Understand the WAN-related performance problems and how they impact adoption of Cloud Computing technologies.
• Learn how WAN optimization has already facilitated the deployment of Private Clouds in use by thousands of enterprises today.
• Discover how WAN optimization can facilitate the adoption of Public Cloud infrastructure in the future.
