Benefits of Replify Accelerator
As demonstrated in the scenario above, significant network traffic can be generated for a relatively small print operation. The amount of traffic generated is dependent on the amount of raster data that a document contains, and therefore can vary widely for documents with the same file type.
It is not uncommon for high quality PDF files to generate several hundred Mb of network traffic when printing, so the amount of printer network traffic that can be generated from a small user base should not be under-estimated.
Deploying Replify Accelerator in a centralised printing environment has the following advantages:
- Protocol optimisation occurs for the CIFS conversation between client and spool server
- Compression occurs for traffic generated between the client and print server
- Compression occurs for traffic generated between the print server and printer
- Intelligent Caching Engine (ICE) data reduction takes effect when the same or similar documents are printed multiple times.
