What is your opinion of WAN Accelerators? Please post to the comments section.
I haven't used or configured a WAN Accelerator but from the reading I've done so far it seems that the older the protocol is, the better a W.A. will help. Older protocols were designed when we were ignorant of the networking realities we have today. More modern protocols tend to do their own compression, caching, don't do stupid things that fail over high latency links, and so on. In particular: Am I right but if you mostly have home-grown protocols, you can tune them better than a W.A. can accelerate them?
