Bluecoat cacheflow and bluecoat packetshaper
Does anyone have any info on these extremely expensive products?
The company behind them, bluecoat, sells them as appliances only. no software to download or try out.
i am 1000% sure they are merely modified linux distros with some software they may have converted over.
so with that can we achieve a free solution to their claim of 90% caching (bluecoat cacheflow)
and then with the packetshaper they claim it accelerates tcpip by responding to acks quickly and so on.
They use FreeBSD, same as we do, actually. With a ton of proprietary pieces, there aren't any available open source tools that do all the things those do unfortunately.
can we know how they do it for each product maybe theres a free a way ?
