Windows Server 2012 BranchCache Deployment Guide is live in the Microsoft Download Center

The new BranchCache Deployment Guide is now available for download at, and includes instructions for using many new BranchCache features while you deploy the technology.

As I mentioned in my blog post Highlighting BranchCache Hosted Cache Mode in Windows Server 2012, (, it is much easier to deploy BranchCache in hosted cache mode with this new version, and you can deploy as many hosted cache servers per branch as you want.

Client deployment is also streamlined; by setting a few Group Policy settings, you can configure domain member branch office clients to operate in distributed cache mode - unless they find a hosted cache server, in which case they switch automatically to hosted cache mode.

Thanks, and I hope you enjoy deploying BranchCache with this guide.
