New feature called branchcache

in my test installation of Windows Server 2008 R2 I found today below the "Add Features Wizard" the item: "Branchcache" and I was asking myself if this is based on Velocity CTP 3 or is this an indiviual development??


BranchCache, available on both Windows Server 2008 R2 and Windows 7, enables client computers in a branch office to retrieve content securely and locally, instead of retrieving it from a central office server. Because branch offices are typically connected over slower WAN links, BranchCache reduces WAN traffic, and increases application responsiveness on the client computer.

BranchCache installs the services needed to provide BranchCache client functionality. It also provides BranchCache server support for the HTTP protocol, Hostet Cache, and services other then the BranchCache for network files role service.
