The expand appliance is an advanced cache (and compression) engine in which
the data is cached on both ends.

I've heard 200%-400% increases when using Expand with the ICA protocol...
But it, like everything else, can't help high latency connections.

Subject: [THIN] Expand Accelerators

Hello everyone
I'm looking at a problem where we'd like to get a remote site with a
128K satellite link to be able to host up to 15 users all on Citrix.
Taking the general rule of thumb to be 20k per session, I would need
300k of bandwidth. Upping the link isn't a solution.

The Expand accelerators (www.expand.com) seem too good to be true, the
sales docs suggest that they could easily get 15 Citrix users on a 128k
link. Does anyone have any real world experience with Expand, good or
bad?

Thanks

Russell
