Three technologies enable the centralization of data by mitigating or eliminating most WAN problems (with the exception of speed of light latency or distance). These include:

  1. Fat pipe TCP WAN optimization (a.k.a. Data Replication Optimization or DRO)
  2. Skinny pipe TCP WAN optimization, plus Wide-Area File Systems or WAFS (a.k.a. Wide-Area Data Services [WADS], Wide-Area Application Services [WAAS] and Wide-Area Data Management [WADM])
  3. Distributed ROBO backup to disk
We'll look at how each of these three technologies resolves WAN issues, strengths and weaknesses, and where each is ideally suited for deployment.
