Branch cache or similar for sharepoint? RRS feed

  • Question

  • We have a lot of smaller offices with slow speed links. Is there a way to use Microsoft technology to speed up /caching Sharepoint 2010?

    • Branch cache in Win7. Is this any help?
    • ISA Server at every office?
    • ...

    Any input would greatly be appreciated.

  • SharePoint is wholly DB driven, so it handles some caching, but not much. You could implement caching at the network level, as Aravind has suggested, but this can get complicated very quickly.

    Check out http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/gg441256.aspx for options within SharePoint 2010 to allow the remote clients a little easier time. We're playing with a lot of these right now, but don't have it fully implemented since we haven't fully tested all options.

  • Branch cache may not suit, SharePoint workspace looks like an ideal candidate for your case. All the users can take a local copy of their workspace, work on local copy and Sync it back when the network is better.

  • well unfortunately the sites are shared between offices. one cannot work locally/offline. this will disturb other users working in same project.

  • You can try implementing Caching at the network proxy level.
