The article presents the best practices for deploying wide area networks (WAN) application-acceleration devices. Some users consider defining their key goals as one of the practices to deploy application acceleration. Some of these users aim to reduce WAN bandwidth consumption and cut monthly circuit costs. Choosing which design is better between inline or off-path WAN-acceleration devices is regarded as one best practice. To establish encrypted tunnels between pairs of devices or to keep traffic visible to all other devices along the WAN path is also considered.

    Increasing the number of cores in a multi-core processor can only be achieved by reducing the resources available in each core, and hence sacrificing the per-core performance. Furthermore, having a large number of homogeneous cores may not be effective for all the applications. For instance,...
