There are 3 ways in which Steelhead WAN optimization can improve the performance of VMware View.
1. Steelhead provides benefit for USB redirection and print traffic with about 60% bandwidth reduction for this traffic
2. For PCoIP, RiOS 8.0 provides QoS capabilities to identify PCoIP packet priorities and provide granular QoS classification
3. With Granite, you can completely eliminate PCoIP traffic across the WAN and move branch office user desktops to the branch for local execution. The solution offers bandwidth and latency reduction as well as access to desktops during WAN outages
Here is a presentation and demo covering Riverbed on VMware View
The creativity of our technical marketing team knows no bounds. They’ve released a video worthy of Sundance film festival consideration that provides a glimpse into the power of enterprise information technology available today.
You can now build a “stateless branch” office by achieving 100% consolidation of edge servers, applications, and data into the data center…in 5 minutes! Watch the video to learn how.
Every once in a while as a technology professional you get an opportunity to work on something disruptive. This one is big.
Today Riverbed introduced an architectural approach to consolidated IT known as edge virtual server infrastructure (Edge-VSI). At the core of edge-VSI is Granite, a first of its kind edge server consolidation product.
Edge-VSI does for edge servers outside of the data center what virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) did for desktops: allow IT to consolidate edge servers in the data center, without impacting application performance at the edge. To enable this approach, Riverbed introduces Granite, which allows organizations to consolidate servers and storage from edge locations to the data center, yet project the data to the edge of the enterprise as if it were local.
This innovation decouples storage from compute delivering the best of all worlds: 100% consolidation and control of data while delivering LAN-like performance of applications at the edge. All at up to 50% of the costs of traditional, distributed infrastructure.
In addition to Granite, Riverbed introduced two new Steelhead product series:
Steelhead CX - a series of dedicated WAN optimization appliances for the WAN optimization enthusiast
Steelhead EX - an enterprise-class branch office appliance series featuring WAN optimization and a VMware virtualization hypervisor for the consolidation enthusiast
Both Steelhead CX and Steelhead EX appliances have more resources (CPU, memory) and deliver more impressive specifications (throughput, TCP connections) than previous models. Enjoy!
