SNW Spring Opens Today in Santa Clara

SNW Spring 11
Computerworld's Storage Networking World show opens today at the Santa Clara, CA, Convention Center.  (If I were going, I wouldn't miss Steve Wozniak's keynote…!) Steve_wozniak_headshot

When you think of storage infrastructure companies, you might not think of Riverbed, but in fact, we'll be all over SNW.

In addition to our booth in the exhibition hall, our customer, Pump Solutions Group (PSG) will present a case study on the benefits the company since they began accelerating and deduplicating their cloud-based backups with Riverbed's Whitewater Appliance.

Psg There will also be a presentation from Riverbed Technical Leader Steve Riley and Technical Director Josh Tseng (both of whom are regular guest bloggers in this space) on the benefits of acceleration in cloud computing and cloud storage environments.

Traditionally, Riverbed's space has been networking, but with the increasingly wide adoption of cloud computing, the lines between networking and storage technologies have blurred (blurring than was started by SAN several years ago, and has continued to this day).  We've been able to take our expertise in WAN Optimization and apply it to storage. 

Our Steelhead appliances can make a huge difference in replication speeds and times, and our Whitewater appliance has made it safe and realistic to do daily full backups out to a cloud storage provider. 

If you're going to be at SNW in Santa Clara, please make sure you stop by our booth and talk to some of our folks about what we can do to better protect your critical data and get those backups done in less time, while making it easy and quick to restore the data.
