Converged Infrastructure in the Branch: Riverbed Granite Becomes SteelFusion

With today’s rebranding of Riverbed Granite as SteelFusion, Riverbed is prodding all branch IT owners to step up and consider what branch IT should ideally look like. Instead of a disparate package of network optimization, remote servers and storage arrays, difficult if not foresworn data protection approaches, and independently maintained branch applications… converged SteelFusion edge appliances sit in the branch to provide local computing performance but work on “projected” data… A big part of the unique magic in SteelFusion is that it enables branch locations to leverage enterprise storage actually located in the data center as if it were local high performance storage….

For our part in this conversation, I try to remain attentive to a longer term ideal vision (where the market should go) while staying attentive to reality today, and where practitioners can actually get tangible benefit from solutions that may be early or partial incarnations of that long term ideal, but still offer significant benefit today.
