Using Outlook Anywhere inside Corp Network for all users

Dear Experts,

What do you think about using RPCoverHTTPS on all connections to my Exchange 2010 Server from inside the corporate network? I've enabled it through GPO for a group of users. They said Outlook has been connecting fast then before.

I read Exchange 2013 got rid of RPC connections and now uses only HTTPS for Client Access

What are the impacts on server's performance, network traffic and so on? Does it can help me save some wan bandwidth? Our Exchange is deployed at the HQ Office and  I've got couple Branch offices connected though Hi-Speed MPLS.

Do you recommend this approach?

Regards,

Rodrigo Garcone

I always use Outlook Anywhere, there is an extra overhead on the CAS role from the HTTPS traffic compared to MAPI connections, but this is usually minimal on modern processors, it also seems to be offset by the reduction in load from having the constant connection of MAPI, the HTTPS processor load can also be mitigated by using SSL offloading using something else to terminate the HTTPS traffic in front of the CAS role.

From an end user perspective, With Outlook 2010 it usually "feels" faster.
