The BranchCache hosted cache server videos are now live!

Hi everyone -


Just wanted to let you know that a new video on how to deploy a non-domain member BranchCache hosted cache server is now published live on TechNet Edge.


This is a two-part video, and the total running time for both is around eleven and a half minutes.


With the video you can learn how to deploy a BranchCache hosted cache server with Windows Server® 2008 R2 Enterprise and Windows Server® 2008 R2 Datacenter.


BranchCache is a wide area network (WAN) bandwidth optimization technology that is included in some editions of the Windows Server® 2008 R2 and Windows® 7 operating systems.


This video shows you key information on deploying a hosted cache server when you want to deploy BranchCache in hosted cache mode.


Part 1, which is six minutes long, demonstrates how to install the BranchCache feature, configure the BranchCache service mode, and create a self-signed certificate using Internet Information Services (IIS). You can view Part 1 on TechNet Edge at


Part 2, which is five and a half minutes long, demonstrates how to link the certificate to BranchCache and configure BranchCache-enabled client computers to trust the hosted cache server. You can view Part 2 on TechNet Edge at


For a complete set of BranchCache documentation, including the content that is mentioned in these videos, see BranchCache for Windows Server 2008 R2 in the Windows Server 2008 and Windows Server 2008 R2 Technical Library at
