The solution provides performance benefits and reduces resource loading on the server farms for the Citrix Present Server running on the application. The Citrix Presentation Server is a remote access/application publishing product that allows people to connect to applications available from central servers. The advantage of publishing applications using Presentation Server is that it lets people connect to these applications remotely, from their homes, smart phones, and other devices outside of their corporate networks.
The WAASs provided performance benefits to Citrix Presentation Server application by providing optimization to the traffic/data flowing across the WAN and caching data at the local WAASs. The cached data reduced the amount of traffic flowing across the WAN and allowing for more ransactions/observations to take place.
The Cisco ACE reduced resource loading on the server farm by providing load balancing on the data that was bound for the server farm.
