How does a Riverbed Stealhead WAN acceleration opttimize


Interview Answer

1 Answer


A few ways:
 - Data Compression
 - Data caching, so that duplicate data is not sent over the WAN, only the referencing block ID
 - Optimizing round trip times by looking for the right packet size, and sticking with it. Versus typical TCP/IP transmission where it starts with the smallest packet size, and keeps sending larger packets until it fails, then it starts the process over again.
