By 2017, two-thirds of the applications used by businesses will be processed in the cloud--including email, document sharing and storage, collaboration, ERP, CRM, and more.
Historically, the closer the user has been to the data, the better. But in a cloud model, the business has less control over the data's physical location, which can affect performance. Now the industry is at the threshold of a significant change that is poised to eliminate this constraint from most IT decisions. With the help of modern tools designed for this purpose, IT managers can tap into the cloud as efficiently as if all its resources were stored in the next room.
Applications and data can be placed wherever is optimal for the business and can be quickly moved around as necessary. Users will experience no performance degradation. Administrators and developers can retain visibility into application behavior regardless of how much distance might separate them.
Steve Riley, Director, Office of the CTO at Riverbed Technology, shares his insights and expertise to explain how location-independent computing can make the cloud feel local.
