In an IT world of hybrid and distributed everything, what organizations want is a solution that brings centralization, flexibility, and automation to Edge IT. A solution that allows you to roll out services when you need them, how you need them and where you need them, all while ensuring your most critical corporate asset data is protected. Imagine an Edge with no servers. No storage. No more backup to worry about. What if you could instantly provision new applications, new services and entirely new sites across your business? And what if you could instantly recover from a remote outage? It’s a hands off, Zero Branch IT approach. Through Riverbed SteelFusion — branches can be spun up, spun down, moved, backed up, and restored amazingly fast all from the central data center, and now conveniently in the cloud, without requiring assistance from operational staff in the branch. Riverbed SteelFusion helps businesses meet the variable application performance requirements of their ROBO locations while reducing complexity and mitigating risk.
Riverbed SteelFusion brings the simplicity, agility, and security of hyperconvergence to the edge of your network. Hyperconvergence has seen wide adoption in enterprise IT, its modular blocks of server, storage, and networking simplify administration and improve scalability in the data center. But what about remote and branch offices (ROBOs)? According to the Taneja Group, only Riverbed SteelFusion gives IT organizations the simplicity, security, and scalability of hyper convergence to the edge of the enterprise, while still providing the performance and access that ROBOs need. Riverbed SteelFusion uniquely takes remote office and branch office IT to zero by enabling enterprise level security for remote data, instant provisioning of remote services and locations, fast recovery from outages. and LANlevel performance for edge users.

Zero Branch IT With Riverbed SteelFusion
Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG) tests the Riverbed Hyperconverged Edge solution. IT organizations are constantly charged with the task of balancing business priorities with the technology investments required to achieve them. This often results in highly complex environments of point solutions characterized by application and infrastructure silos that lack integration within and among individual systems. This is especially true in remote office/branch office (ROBO) locations, where large numbers of sites have widely varying application requirements, plus the challenges of their distance from corporate data centers and lack of on site IT resources. In this hands on lab review, Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG) tests Riverbed SteelFusion with a focus on validating the ways Riverbed SteelFusion greatly simplifies the deployment and management of remote sites and branch offices, while delivering unprecedented protection to data assets and continuous and high performance branch applications to end users.
Securing edge data How you can get data out of high risk places. Data outside the data center is a security risk. Today’s businesses store over half of their data in remote and branch offices where it is subject to natural disasters, hacking, political turmoil, or outright theft. What if you could store, secure, and manage all of your data where it’s safest, in your data center or public cloud, while guaranteeing that your end users still get local performance, even during WAN outages? Data centralization in the secure data center or cloud without sacrificing performance. Riverbed SteelFusion branch converged infrastructure enables “stateless” secure branch services. Riverbed SteelFusion’s unique approach of data centralization consolidates data from remote and branch offices into the data center or public cloud where physical access is strictly controlled and backup and replication policies and procedures are stringent, your branch data is much more secure.
