About This Video

Learn how to deploy a BranchCache hosted cache server with Windows Server® 2008 R2 Enterprise and Windows Server® 2008 R2 Datacenter. BranchCache is a wide area network (WAN) bandwidth optimization technology that is included in some editions of the Windows Server® 2008 R2 and Windows® 7 operating systems.

This two part video shows you key information on deploying a hosted cache server when you want to deploy BranchCache in hosted cache mode.

Part 1, which is six minutes long, demonstrates how to install the BranchCache feature, configure the BranchCache service mode, and create a self-signed certificate using Internet Information Services (IIS).

Part 2, which is five and a half minutes long, demonstrates how to link the certificate to BranchCache and configure BranchCache-enabled client computers to trust the hosted cache server.
