Problems caused by Server Consolidation and Collaboration 1. Microsoft file access performance problems – Problems caused by Server Consolidation and Collaboration 1. Microsoft file access performance problems – Folders and file opens, saves are very slow – CIFS over the WAN is very poor combination 2. Increased WAN traffic – Impact to Windows collaboration and customer critical applications (ERP, CRM, Vo. IP, etc) ? 3. Unexpected management overhead 4. Potential risks – From file integrity to business continuity 10

i. Shared Data Reduction Technology: Caching and Compression ■ File-aware caching – – File i. Shared Data Reduction Technology: Caching and Compression ■ File-aware caching – – File Differencing on writes/updates/repeat access Sends only the changes Delivers faster response and improved bandwidth utilization Self-managing cache ensures best performance for frequently accessed data ■ Application-intelligent caching – Extensions for Microsoft Exchange (MAPI attachment caching) – HTTP (static web pages) ■ Dictionary-based Compression – Transmits references to repeated data blocks instead of data – Compression ratios of up to 100: 1 17

Dictionary-based Compression ■ Each end of the link maintains a ‘dictionary’ of datastreams sent Dictionary-based Compression ■ Each end of the link maintains a ‘dictionary’ of datastreams sent and/or seen – New datastreams catalogued in the dictionary with a ‘tag’ assigned ■ Subsequent transfers of a common datastream don’t require the physical data to be transferred Data Center – Only a ‘tag’ telling the receiver where to locate the datastream in the dictionary Tag Sent Tag Rc’d Remote Office IT 1001100110111101001110001101111 011010010100101010011111101111 Datastream requested 1001100110111101001110001101111 011010010100101010011111101111 Datastream delivered 18
