Hi,

I have a sharepoint farm which has 50K active directory users. It is running Intranet and team sites only and I like to optimize the web traffic - don't mind spending money!!

I evaluated riverbed, bluecoat and aptimizer

Are there any other enterprise products i can review?

Thanks!

My first question is, are you sure the web traffic performance is the bottle neck? Typically the bottle neck is SQL.

For web traffic performance, look into any of the major vendor of WAN Accelerators - Riverbed, Citrix, others.

How can SQL be optimized for SharePoint.

Other than Riverbed Citrix, what else?

Lots of ways, but dependent on your env. Tune your LUNs appropriately for the dbs. Distribute databases across different luns and different sql servers, etc.

You should check out citrix netscaler - you dont have to buy an expensive appliance anymore, they took their appliance firmware and turned into a virtual machine called the netscaler vpx. The NS platform will make sharepoint scream.

its estimate that 75% of all internet users go through a netscaler everyday, because every major website uses that to accellerate their website.

Its not like riverbed, the citrix branch repeater is what competes with riverbed. This is different, nothing on the client side - just the virtual appliance.
