As deal complexity has risen, so too has customers' risk aversion and the number of stakeholders dedicated to a given purchase. The best companies build consensus among diverse groups by tapping into the right values and fostering an environment of collective learning.
In today’s global economy, companies are increasingly distributed. That puts IT in a precarious position, especially when it comes to disaster recovery. It can take days to restore branch operations. Branch converged infrastructure delivers local performance, stores data safely in the datacenter, and enables instant recovery. Learn how to recover faster, reduce risk, and save money.
In this Taneja Group Product Profile we review Riverbed’s SteelFusion (formerly Granite), and examine how it marries together multiple technical advances to deliver innovative branch converged infrastructure. SteelFusion supports distributed IT by addressing traditional branch challenges – providing simplified deployment, resiliency in the face of network issues, improved protection, fast recovery from the central datacenter, and a greatly lowered OPEX.
Riverbed SteelFusion, as the first converged infrastructure solution purpose-built for the branch, promises to transform branch IT through the stateless “projection” of data, applications, and VMs actually stored in the datacenter. In this Taneja Group Technology Validation we found that SteelFusion truly can transform branch IT by reducing complexity, injecting powerful capabilities and making the branch resilient, protected, and recoverable.
