Replify is able to identify a number of protocols and apply protocol-specific optimization. For example, the efficiency of the ‘chatty’ CIFS file sharing protocol is greatly improved by Replify’s read ahead and write behind optimizations. For HTTP, Replify is able to reduce the cost of messages by losslessly encoding lengthy header information. Many other protocols are optimized in a variety of specific ways but even without protocol specific optimisation, Replify still delivers world class WAN optimization for other traffic types.
Where the appropriate keys are provided, Replify is able to safely and securely accelerate SSL connections using the latest and most secure TLS protocols and features. In addition, Replify is able to secure normally insecure application traffic using TLS between Replify nodes.
