Expert blows away cloud delivery optimization myths

Expert John Burke counts down the most common myths about cloud delivery optimization.

Things these days change so fast in a networking pro's world, it's hard to keep up with current capabilities, even with key technology like the cloud. In this podcast, John Burke of Nemertes Research aims to eliminate myths about cloud delivery optimization.

Among the wrong information that continues to circulate, says Burke, is the idea that optimization is all about compression. There's much more going on behind the scenes in cloud delivery than just that, as he explains. Other myths include the notion that cloud delivery optimization is only for big branch offices and only about the wide area network -- or that it will become completely irrelevant in the SaaS age.

Listen to the podcast and make sure common misinformation isn't distorting your understanding of what cloud delivery optimization is all about.
