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.
Merlin International is partnering with IBM and Riverbed Technology to combine IBM storage solutions (IBM Storwize V7000, IBM XIV and IBM SVC - SAN Volume Controller), with the new Riverbed SteelFusion (formerly Granite) storage delivery solution to enable IT organizations to resolve this conflict by delivering the best of both worlds – local performance in the branch delivered from the data center.
In this Webcast, speakers from IBM and Riverbed will describe the advantages of deploying SteelFusion at the Edge and in the DataCenter, combined with IBM Storage Technologies, for the following use cases:
- How to Consolidate and Protect your data
- Saving Costs with Advanced Storage Capabilities
- Virtualize to manage heterogeneous storage systems
- Recovering from Disasters
