I have an east coast and west coast data center connected with a DS3. I am running into issues with streaming data via TCP and was wondering besides hardware acceleration, is there any options at increasing throughput and maximizing the bandwidth? How can I overcome the TCP stack limitations inherent in Windows (registry tweaks seem to not functions too well)?

You should talk to the vendor (microsoft) and ask them how to tweak their product to properly work over the WAN.

Don't let them get away with substandard product when it comes to WAN optimization. If you can get microsoft to clean up their act, you'd have done ISPs a great service, because then we can stop trying to convince customers that it's not ISP fault that they get bad speeds with their windows PCs.
