Converging Branch IT Infrastructure the Right Way
In this paper we review Riverbed’s SteelFusion (formerly known as Granite) branch converged infrastructure solution, and see how it marries together multiple technical advances including WAN optimization, stateless compute, and “projected” datacenter storage to solve those branch challenges and bring the benefits of convergence out to branch IT.
At Taneja Group we’ve noted 5 major ways that IT operations can improve database performance. In this 30 minute webcast, we'll look at why IT operations often gets the responsibility for database performance, and the IT-centric options they can pursue.
We specialize in providing complete marketing guidance, including product management, messaging, positioning, and launch support, to Storage, Server Virtualization, eDiscovery, WAN Optimization and Data Protection companies of all sizes but especially to emerging companies.

It’s clear that enterprise IT practitioners everywhere are soon going to have to operate scale-out computing platforms in the production data center - Hadoop is the likely target. The good news is that there is now a plethora of Hadoop infrastructure options to choose from to fit almost every practical big data need – the challenge now for IT is to implement the best solutions for their business client needs.
Software-Driven Mid-Range Storage
While seemingly dozens of new vendors storm the market with simplified storage built on the backs of the latest solid state and large capacity drives, IBM has laid claim to an exceptional pedigree around delivering highly architected, highly capable storage that stands out as uniquely field-proven and clearly free from the risks of emerging storage systems. One resultant solution is the new IBM Storwize V5000 – one more storage array in the broad family of IBM Storwize systems (currently consisting of the small business V3700, the mid-market V5000, and the highly scalable V7000).
Transforming Resiliency and TCO with Riverbed SteelFusionIn January of 2014, Taneja Group took a deeper look at what Riverbed is doing with SteelFusion. While we’ve provided other written assessments on the use case and value of Riverbed SteelFusion, we also wanted to take a hands-on look at how the technology works, and whether in real world use it really delivers management effort reductions, availability improvements, and increased IT capabilities along with consequent improvements in the risks around branch office IT.
