How Wan Optimization Works

How Wan Optimization Works?

How Wan Optimization works is by:

  • Stream Compression and bandwidth deduplication via byte-caching in real time on the fly.
  • Reduced data over the WAN results in bandwidth cost savings and Wan Acceleration.
  • This provides Application acceleration which improves quality of experience for end users.
  • Quality of Service and Packet Loss Recovery enhance the link performance to ensure great application response.

Simple Demo

Below is a demo of a file copied over a WAN link of 6.5 Mbps. No file caching is done, only compression and deduplication. Optimization is disabled on the first transfer and copy speed is about WAN line rate at 800 KBytes/s. With Wan optimization enabled, the warm byte-cached data delivers 80+ Mbps or more than 10x WAN acceleration.


“Wanos has helped us to improve replication throughput more than twofold. Although we also trialed the leading wan optimization products, we selected Wanos since it provided one of the best ROI’s”
Jorge Redondo, Head of Business Technology, AIVA

This client's replication transfers approach 40 Mbps while the WAN remains at 11 Mbps, resulting in 1.2 TB saved for the week.

The Solution?

How Wan Optimization Works
  • Wan Acceleration appliances are placed on each end of the link.
  • The Wan Optimizer reconstructs the data back to its original form.
  • The Wan Optimization solution is transparent to the end stations.
