It would have to be the HDX WAN Optimization and Application Acceleration.

How has it helped my organization?

Ability to deliver content / applications over XenApp/XenDesktop to remote sites with Satellite links.

What needs improvement?

Optimization of CIFS traffic and its integration with Windows (ie. Branch Repeater with Windows or CloudBridge WS).

What is most valuable?

CIFS optimisation is really good and benefits are realised if using ICA also.

How has it helped my organization?

Using solutions like this reduces the increase on Telco bandwidth - inter site optimisations and using the accelerator software for mobile users can be of great assistance too.

What needs improvement?

The configuration is less than intuitive and it's important that the network is fully mapped out before trailing this.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Varies from client to client.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

No, but I have done POCs on the Riverbed and Bluecoat appliances before recommending CloudBridge.

What other advice do I have?

Understand your network back to front. Make sure that your firewalls are well documented and that the network appliances in the company are well documented.
