Using Branch Cache to Improve WAN Users Performance of Custom .NET App RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi - Sorry in advance if this is the wrong forum - I'm just not sure where else to ask. We are investigating the replacement of Riverbed devices with Windows Branch Cache and have some confusion around the technology. Specifically my team developed a custom .NET Smart Client application that communicates over restful ASP.NET MVC WebAPI web services hosted in IIS on servers within our own private network. The bulk of our users run the application within the head office via LAN but we also have users in branch offices that connect over a WAN who struggle with performance. Riverbed devices have been an effective tool in a couple of remote sites, however, we can not put them in all locations and so were hoping that Branch Cache could be a more global solution.

    Can anyone tell me if Branch Cache will help with performance over the WAN? Does it do so "out of the box" or are there code changes required in order for it to work?
