Achieve Maximum Levels of Agility, Performance, and Security at the Edge
Legacy edge IT is a major barrier to digital transformation
While the cloud came with the promise of making business more efficient, it has actually increased complexity for corporate IT as organizations strive to transform for the digital age.
This complexity intensifies at the enterprise edge. Branch offices and other remote locations are critical to corporate success, but have become expensive roadblocks to digital transformation due to limited IT expertise, islands of aging infrastructure, inefficient operations, unreliable application performance, and massive volumes of unprotected data.
Factor in the rise of the Internet of Things (IoT), and these challenges will only become more pronounced. With 30 billion IoT devices expected by 2020, the resulting growth in data generated and stored at the edge will overtax legacy IT operations and expose the business to increased risk.
All of this is creating a new focus for IT: the edge. And how well IT does at the edge will drive how well the organization does overall.
By physically separating compute and storage, the Cloud Edge solution enables you to efficiently deploy and remotely manage the right set of apps, data, and network services to support the unique requirements of any edge location—from remote offices to IoT devices to other connected machines. All IT operations are managed from a central location to bring unprecedented levels of efficiency to your digital business.

Recover from unplanned outages in minutes, with no lost business
Data always needs to be at our fingertips, and for many businesses, this means storing large quantities at the edge, often outside the confines of enterprise-grade security solutions. With Riverbed’s Cloud Edge solution, there is no trade-off between application performance and data security. All infrastructure is collapsed back into the data center or cloud, securing 100% of data while retaining the ability to instantly project it back out to the edge, when and where needed.
