WAN Optimization and QoS

Challenges

  • Optimize network traffic between data centers in different locations
  • Requires costly WAN optimization systems at the edge, difficult to scale

Solution

  • Complement WAN optimization systems with Qosmos Service Aware Module® (Qosmos SAM®) integrated with vSwitches residing in the servers
  • Qosmos SAM acts as a Service Classifier using packet tagging to convey App ID and metadata

Benefits

  • Lower Capex and Opex by replacing proprietary WAN optimization systems with DPI integrated with vSwitch
  • Better capacity planning: easier to manage and to scale
  • Easier to comply with customer SLAs
