When you have a number of large remote offices that are downloading large documents or have limited bandwidth instead of looking at an asymmetric deployment you may want to consider a symmetric deployment.  A symmetric deployment positions the data closer to the user minimizing the effects of latency and reducing bandwidth.  The benefits of symmetric deployments include but are not limited to:

  • Compression
  • Data De-duplication
  • TCP Optimizations
  • Web Object Caching
  • Non-Web Object Caching

For more information on symmetric acceleration see the Acceleration 102 White-paper.
