[THIN] Re: Is anyone aware of this/using this?

Trying to get pricing is like pulling teeth.

Seriously I think the pricing is still waaaay too far out of reach for most 
organizations. Seems to me that they make up an arbitrary price based on the 
connection speed. It certainly isn't based on the hardware which is simply a 
Dell server with a fabricated bezel with some beefed up memory and their 
special nic card running a linux os. Even trying to amortize it over a few 
years it seems to still be less expensive to just add another T1/T3 or whatever 
you need.

From a features point of view, the WANScaler is on par with the Cisco
product, only it has a much better roadmap and focus. The other advantage 
Citrix will have is that they are also partnering with Microsoft to for a
"Branch Office" type offering, so their insight into CIFS, AD, Exchange,
etc, will only improve.

Chad, I would seriously get Citrix in to demonstrate the WANScaler. You 
won't be disappointed.

Cheers.

I wrote a blog entry some time ago about this with some info. ( 
http://kenzig.blogspot.com/2006/09/on-citrix-wanscaler-and-waas-and-wah.html

)  We are currently testing the Wanscaler and will be testing the Cisco 
WAAS device next so I will be able to update you when I see it.
I can tell you that the WAAS device is just a card that plugs in your
existing router which is a little more compelling and takes up less rack
space versus a whole 1 or 2 U dell server space that the wanscaler takes 
up.

Sounds somewhat like Citrix WanScaler....
