Riverbed Technology has announced Riverbed SteelFusion 4.0, the first and only hyper-converged infrastructure solution for the branch of the future. SteelFusion 4.0 enables zero IT at the branch by virtualizing and consolidating 100% of data and servers from remote sites into data centers, centralizing data security and IT management without losing the benefits of running branch services locally.
“With SteelFusion 4.0, Riverbed delivers the branch of the future with a zero branch IT solution that eliminates the challenges of supporting remote sites. This means getting all of the infrastructure – servers, storage and backup – out of the branch and centralized into the data center. By doing so, companies gain the agility to instantly provision new services and apps and to recover data in minutes versus days. This also means data security and control with full visibility, ensuring business continuity, and those apps perform as if local. SteelFusion 4.0 delivers on all these promises and more,” said Paul O’Farrell, Sr Vice-President & General Manager, SteelFusion and SteelHead Product Groups, Riverbed. See more
