Video: 6 year old installs Riverbed Steelhead appliance

Posted by bobegilbert on March 27, 2011

Riverbed has gained a reputation throughout the years for having a groundbreaking technology that not only performs great, but is also simple to deploy.  I decided to put Riverbed's "it is simple" reputation to the test and asked my 6 year old daughter to perform an installation and configuration of Riverbed's flagship Steelhead appliance.  6 year-old Jasmine was not only successful at installing and configuring the appliance, she also tested it afterwards!  

This is all caught on video. Enjoy!

    Just awesome! She’s a natural presenter! Good to see a Procurve switch in the mix too. Looking forward to her Advanced QoS session. 🙂 Classic!

    Jasmine is now at the top of all Riverbed PS engagements! Who said child labour was dead lmao!

  3. Building technical systems involves a lot of hard work and specialized knowledge, languages and protocols, coding and debugging, testing and refactoring.

    Can I replace my 6 year old with your 6 year old? What is maintenance like? =)

  5. Hi Kelvin,
    The maintenance is not too bad until she becomes a teenager. Then she will surely be considered high maintenance.
    Did I say that?

    Adorable 🙂 Can’t wait for her QoS video.

  7. All of the books in the world contain no more information than is broadcast as video in a single large American city in a single year. Not all bits have equal value. Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.
