Date: Tuesday, October 23, 2012, 2:00 PM EDT / 11:00 AM PST

Organizations today are faced with the challenge of satisfying both end-users and IT. While end-users require flexible and reliable access to their data and applications, IT organizations need to meet those demands while keeping budgets under control and company assets secure. Inherent performance challenges with the wide area network (WAN), including distance, latency, limited and costly bandwidth, and unforeseeable outages, have forced IT departments to maintain IT infrastructure in edge locations.

Do you still host servers, storage and backup in branch offices to meet user performance requirements? Join Eric Carter, Sr. Product Marketing Manager, as she discusses the challenges of delivering local performance across the WAN from the data center.

You'll also learn how to:

* Streamline and consolidate branch locations
* Extend centrally managed data to distributed end-users with LAN performance, enabling full consolidation and centralization of branch servers and applications
* Serve edge locations from the data center, even in the event of a WAN outage
* Provision new locations wherever and whenever needed without compromising quality
