Understand the Customer Environment
 How many sites? Branches and data centers
 Bandwidth at each Site?
 Does the network use MPLS and/or direct internet connections?  Number of users per Site?
 Is there a mobile workforce?
 What about future growth (Interceptor, CMC, SMC…)?
 Sites supporting replication or data backup or DR?
 Are there server or data center consolidation requirements?  Are there branch consolidation or virtualization requirements?  Does the company use or plan to use SaaS applications?
 Does the idea of prioritizing Office365 over Facebook resonate?

Why Do We Need to Know?
Steelhead Product Specs are Defined By:
Total number of connections to be optimized
Total optimized throughput
Total size of data that can be addressed by segment labels
Need for storage or virtualization capabilities
Scalability and Management appliances are based on
number of Steelhead appliances in the environment
