While BranchCache might not be the most talked about Windows 2008 R2 feature, it could prove beneficial for those suffering from slow performance in their branch offices. Of course, like DirectAccess, the requirement of upgrading to both R2 and Windows 7 to take advantage of the feature could limit how many organizations initially use it.

From a tech standpoint, however, one key benefit might be that once BranchCache is set up, it requires very little admin interaction after the fact. Tough to argue with that!
