Optimal cloud performance with BranchCache

A session at Microsoft BUILD 2011

  • Tyler Barton
  • Andrew Cunningham

Thursday 15th September, 2011

2:30pm to 3:30pm (PST)

The cloud has enormous potential to reduce operational expenses and achieve new levels of scale, but moving workloads away from the people who depend on them can increase networking costs and hurt productivity. Users expect high performance and don’t care where their apps are hosted. BranchCache can improve the performance of cloud-based apps and reduce bandwidth consumption with a shared cache of data. It speeds up HTTP and SMB communication without requiring app changes or new infrastructure in the office or the data center. In this session, we’ll explore the BranchCache platform and protocols, and explain how they can be used to optimize apps deployed in public and private clouds.
