  • Hi All,

    It is clearly written that Windows 7 Professional and Windows 8 Pro does not support distributed Branch cache mode.

    Does these Professional Editions support hosted cache mode??????

    Regards

  • Hi again -

    Some additional detail:

    Windows 8 Pro contains the platform APIs and Background Intelligent Transfer Service (BITS) integration; Windows 8 Enterprise contains the HTTP and Server Message Block (SMB) integration as well.  Core contains neither.

    Thanks -
