In conjunction with Windows Server 2008 R2 and Windows 7, Microsoft IT leverages BranchCache which caches local copies of content from Web and file servers to enhance performance and reduce bandwidth utilization on Wide Area Networks (WAN), eliminating the need for clients on a WAN having to go over slower links to get access to files. This functionality saves employees time and productivity while at the same time saving money on bandwidth costs.
