Back-hauled SaaS optimization?

Renato Pérez

Hi, I have a doubt:


If many branch offices have Internet access through a main office (Back-hauled internet deployment) and I'd like to implement SaaS optimization for users within that branches: is it mandatory to deploy a SteelHead appliance in every branch? Or is it enough to have just one SteelHead in the main office that faces to the Internet?


I ask this because according to the SaaS User Guide, the deployment (picture attached) seems to use necessarily the ESH and a DCSH for optimization to occur, but I'm not sure if the previously mentioned scenarios can be possible.

    In which segment you want to get the benefit of SaaS optimization. The answer will depend on your choice.

    Direct - ESH-ACSH for every branch  OR Back-hauled - DCSH-ACSH  with  (ESH + DCSH optimization as a plus .for  all branches )  . SaaS optimization benefits will occur in cloud segment in either case. Normal optimization gain will occur between 2 SH's (Branch to DC or Branch to Branch)
