We have Oracle-based enterprise resource planning (ERP) application that facilitates order entry, invoicing, dispatch, stock management, and purchasing. However, it took as much as 30 seconds to perform queries from the remote offices, which were linked via Frame Relay.

Any experiences or ideas shared will be greatly appreciated.

Since our productivity is suffering, I need immediate help.
Our users are constantly complaining about application performance in the remote offices.

Coming across the similar issues, we evaluated the cost of upgrading the WAN links; but ruled it out as it is too expensive.

Hi All,

I explored MPLS, and QoS as ways to expedite the application traffic. Unfortunately MPLS was too expensive and QoS did not provide additional capacity.

Hello everyone,

We analyzed router-based compression. But compression performance did not work well. After researching the market, currently we are considering Juniper, Cisco and Riverbed.

Hi Jasonbroad,

Were you able to evaluate results from analysis of the products like Juniper, Cisco or Riverbed?

If yes, please share your observations.

Riverbed’s Steelhead outperformed all other solutions not only for application acceleration over WAN, but also for ease of use and easy deployment. They proved themselves when we tried their appliances. They provide excellent Wide-area Data Services. For further queries you can visit their forum:
