I still have a Tandy laptop. It’s not a tablet. It’s not a notebook. It is a LAPtop as in you can sit it on your lap. It runs on four AA batteries, and if I want to upgrade the ram to a screaming 256K I have to find something that looks much like those hex bugs that kids play with. The point is that there was a time when we didn’t have multiple T3s connecting our whole network. Many businesses today still kick it retro style (op, op) with some of their branch locations and inflict these small offices with split Ts or lower. For those of us who look at our System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM) solutions to deliver with optimum efficiency, we used to look at these branches and openly weep because we knew that even if we put distribution points in the branch, there was going to be some late night pushes so we wouldn’t bring the connection to its knees. There were some ways around it (Nomad from 1E is a fine product on any network then and today), but for the most part you were stuck. With the advent of SCCM 2012 there is a little known feature for just such a case and that is what we will be focusing on- Pre-Staging Content.
