We're on the way to deploy WIndows7 to our customers and we have a lot of them in small branch offices with very limited bandwidth to our Celerras. It would help a lot because else people will place additional cache servers between the branch offices and the fileservers which will add a lot of complexity and troubles.
Hosted Cache service would be nice as soon as we place smaller Celerras in two of the larger offices because we don't want to select manually which files to keep mirrored in several places.
my company is responsible for the project "Herkules". This project´s goal is to modernize the IT-infrastructure of the Bundeswehr ( German army). We have more than 1.500 locations (>200.000 users) with very different WAN-bandwidths, so the BranchCache functionality would be an essential improvement for the fileservice we provide.
The deployment of Windows 7 will start in about 6 months. So my question is, when will the BranchCache functionality be developed by EMC²?
