Topics that will be covered:

-Segment 1 - Application Fluency
Cisco has made many acquisitions and rolled out many improvements within the group casually referred to as the Application Delivery Business Unit. With the premiere products being offered in this group as both ACE, the Application Control Engine and WAAS, the Wide Area Application Services product, confusion reigns supreme. Since these are NOT mutually exclusive products, we thought it best to chat a bit about what these technologies offer and how one might use them in a complimentary fashion to improve a great many ills of today's network. As we seek to re-centralize our applications moving them physically further away from the very people that need them most...it is the intelligence these devices offer that will have users thinking they are running them locally.

  • Segment 2 - WAAS Ease of Deployment

The benefits of application acceleration have often been overshadowed by perceptions of a difficult implementation. Elizabeth McKoin Consulting Engineer from Cisco's Channel Organization walks us through the new WAAS optimization code with a complete soup to nuts installation on both the host and remote ends to illustrate how many improvements have been made to make this an easy to use product set.

  • Segment 3 - ACE with James Schultz

James Schultz is our engineering guest from Cisco's Data Center Applications group to help us dive deeper on the unique aspects of the Cisco ACE - Application Control Engine. Join us as we discuss and whiteboard the unique aspects of ACE including installation, configuration, and little known benefits of transparent integration, virtualization and no-headache, pay-as-you-go software upgrades.

Segment 4 - ACE and WAAS, Lets Meet the New Couple
Gabriel Dixon from Cisco's Enterprise Solutions Engineering Team (DCAP - Data Center Assurance Program for Applications) walks us through the real world applications testing Cisco does with customer specific lab deployments. The results of testing the actual applications that customers will be seeking to improve through Cisco hardware is a benefit that many vendors cannot offer. Technical documentation that illustrates the inside story from both the application and the network perspective is shared so that customers should only have to 'follow the recipe.'

Specfic applications referenced include Microsoft Sharepoint, Microsoft Exchange 2007 and Oracle as just a few examples.
