in a windows active directory in which you have server 2008 windows servers. if you have a remote office with a slow connection from the remote office to the main office. Isn't there a setup were you have a remote server ( I think it might be called a remote cache server ) so that the remote pc's are using the cache server and very little data has to be passed back a forth between the remote location and the main office. Which will appear to the remote users as if things run faster?
If there is something like that, Is there some good documentation describing this setup? If there is something like this, I want to suggest it to my boss and want to be able to describe it so that he has an idea what is needed to set it up.

Can you provide a little more information on what you are trying to do? Are you talking about simple file services, Active Directory, etc...? What part of the end user experience are you trying to enhance? The more specific you can be the better an answer you will get in return :).

You might be thinking of branch cache.  And another option would be a server at the remote location with DFSR and you could use DFS to have a replica of data in both locations.

Sorry T.J Couey, I was vague. I only had an idea of what I was looking for from something I read a while ago.
Lee W, MVP nailed it though. Branch cache sounds exactly like what I was thinking about.
Thank you for the help.
