I was reading about CERTEON through Microsoft SharePoint Performance discussions until I found what S-Series Accelerator is doing in order to enhance MOSS performance and optimize data transaction process and speed.

Quoted from Sheet:
Certeon S-Series™ are network devices that
accelerate the document flow between centralized
Microsoft® Office™ System applications such as
Word®, Excel®, PowerPoint®, InfoPath®, and Publisher®
and SharePoint® server farms by minimizing network
traffic, decreasing packet turn around times, and
reducing application chattiness. The result is a
breakthrough in response time and scalability
Certeon's Application Acceleration Blueprints™
enable high acceleration through an understanding
of underlying protocols, data object differences,
and Microsoft® Office™ System features such as
the XML-based file formats for PowerPoint, Word,
and Excel. The Application Acceleration Blueprints™
deploy data object differencing through an Object
Differencing Engine (ODE), which accurately identifies
prior views of these data objects.The greater the
accuracy of identification, the more efficient the differencing,
and therefore the better the acceleration.
Furthermore, SharePoint® employs different techniques
to pass arguments and data objects between
the server and each Office® application. With its
application fluency, Certeon's S-Series™ understands
how these elements are used and thus can make a
more accurate identification of these data objects.
Customers will be able to utilize these new upgrades
to 2007 Microsoft® Office™ System and Microsoft®
SharePoint® Products and Technologies without
sacrificing application performance over a WAN.
2007 MICROSOFT® OFFICE™ SYSTEM
AND MOSS SUPPORT
Certeon's S-Series™ accelerates the full range of
protocols and file system formats employed by the
2007 Microsoft® Office™ System and Microsoft Office
SharePoint Server (MOSS). Certeon's Application
Acceleration Blueprints™ securely accelerate access
to the new Office™ Open XML documents (including
.docx, .xlsx, .pptx) and dynamically generated MOSS
In Jordan, Beat is one of Certeon's certified partners who provide a full range of deployment for MS Partners and Customers who uses SharePoint, K2.NET and other office system applications. I met Mr. Muhab (Beat CEO) who has emphasized the productivity and customer feedback satisfaction for this awesome accelerator for MOSS.
I'm reading Tolly Group Test case, upon results I will recommend S-Series for partners and customers who runs MOSS on different branches or different remote front-ends.
