Deploying Cisco Wide Area Application Services – book review

Deploying Cisco Wide Area Application Services from CiscoPress is not for everyone.

Deploying Cisco Wide Area Application Services, 2nd Edition

This is a concept book that aim at professionals involved with design and deployment of WAAS in their networks.

What is WAAS?
In simple words it is a solution (combination of design and technology) to get better performance out of your applications over WAN connections.

The problem (again, in simple words) is closing the gap between the need for bandwidth ($$$) and performance. Some (but not all) of the problem is getting more out of the existing infrastructure. The other part is technology related issues, mostly with the way our cloud is designed.

The book is a great read with detailed descriptions and it covers many design options. It is worth reading if only for the concepts.

After a short introduction the authors review the requirements, planning and implementation.
They cover different scenarios and many options.
They cover different type of connections (like Branch office or Data center) and go over the configuration.

This book has all the steps of the solution and you can either review it all or check out the one piece you’re interested in.
