Storage in a Software-Defined World

The data center of yesterday is quickly going out of fashion, with its siloed, multi-vendored storage environments that ensure storage is costly, inefficient and difficult to manage. Software-defined storage promises to be simple, flexible and ready for the data demands of tomorrow. 

But does software-defined really amount to a new era of storage, or will it simply introduce different kinds of vendor lock-in and management complexity? Tune into this roundtable to hear from storage and infrastructure experts on software-defined storage, its place in the industry, and what’s on the horizon.

Transforming Branch IT Delivery from Provisioning to Recovery

Thursday, September 19, 2013 

11am PDT / 2pm EDT 

Organizations that operate remote and branch offices are often faced with a difficult choice: deploy servers and storage close to users at the edge to ensure local performance or consolidate to the data center to ensure control and safekeeping. A new architectural approach enables IT organizations to resolve the conflict by delivering the best of both worlds – local performance in the branch delivered from the data center. 

Join Riverbed Technology for an overview and discussion with industry analyst Taneja Group as they highlight breakthroughs in storage delivery that enable organizations to present datacenter-managed storage, servers, and applications as if they’re local in remote locations. You’ll learn how to: 

Ensure control of servers, applications, and data centrally to lower costs, improve security, centralize protection, and simplify management without impacting branch user performance
Recover a remote site and resume operations in minutes from the data center over the WAN
Provision, upgrade, and patch branch systems centrally and resume operations with minimal disruption
Lower costs and transform the delivery of IT services to remote offices like many other industries have already done, including government, healthcare, retail, legal, financial, manufacturing, oil & gas, mining, government, architecture, engineering, and construction
