Thinking beyond location-constraints, as Riverbed sees it

By : |February 28, 2014 0

JAIPUR, INDIA: At C-Change 2014, Sanjay Hasija, Riverbed Technology India Pvt Ltd took some moments to provoke thoughts on why computing should not be constrained due to physical factors in an era where ‘work from anywhere’ is increasingly becoming a delightful thought and why WAN related issues should not act as a second-thought trigger.

Gauging the audience sentiment on the issue, he elaborated on how location-independent computing works and delivers, even for enterprises looking at a considerable scale and for critical workloads.

IT today has the flexibility to place computing where customers and people are and that capability comes with business visibility and control for a good computing infrastructure, as he argued.



He also observed how trends are moving from DC to DC replication to DR to DR levels. “The replication can be done for faster uptime and we have large-scale enterprises and many customers who are leveraging our ability here for demands like agility, mobility and flexibility that an extremely spread-out and connected world of people and customers brings forth. We try to ensure not only strong WAN optimization but also prioritization and mission-critical workloads.”

He also touched upon the implications on storage segment here by citing how the company manages to integrate with major storage vendors in a complementary way and not as a competition. It’s time IT can place workloads and data dependent on business needs rather than pressed by a physical location, he underlined highlighting that this possibility is also free of concerns on performance and visibility. Enterprises are getting more dynamic and IT can and should eliminate location constraints rather than being caught in one, he added.

Today, it is not anymore about tough choice on choosing to make a customer happy or making your family happy. Why should infrastructure then remain at the branch, he concluded with a strong question mark.
