Space and power are limited, or totally unavailable
"Most of our field offices are severely space-constrained and subjected to harsh environmental conditions."
- Jon Rudol, Senior Systems Engineer, FHI.
Virtualization has become the default standard in data centers for servers and computer workloads. Many organizations are taking the next steps to virtualize more of their infrastructure, including optimization for the Hybrid WAN.
Branch offices might also have additional challenges that demand virtualization. There might be locations where space is limited or problematic, but where high levels of performance are still required, such as ruggedized military environments or virtualized data centers.
As you look to consolidate IT infrastructure and reduce sprawl, you still need to ensure the best user experience. How do you deliver application acceleration for the best user experience in virtualized environments?
