Cameron Merrett / Rob Radford
Over 4 million Remote Offices Worldwide (growing 1/4million each year)
The average branch has between four and six servers(Source: Nemertes Research)
Current annual spend - $6 billion a year on branch servers, storage, back-up and management
It is estimated that each remote branch costs between $20,000 and $100,000
Unsurprisingly the single most powerful driver for data consolidation (Storage and Server) is cost reduction.(Source: IDC, Gartner, Cisco Analysis)
no servers, application licences at branch office - Lower Capex
less IT admin staff, no remote backups - Lower Opex
Improved data control – single instance of data to backup & permit real time collaboration of information
Over 75% of Fortune 500 CIO's surveyed listed consolidation as a top project
WAFs- TACIT – Brocade Tapestry (Packeteer)
Finally FANs ????????????
Applications were designed and built on a LAN!
LAN’s usually do not have bandwidth or latency issues!
Same issues for RODC and VDI
Problem addressed in different ways since the app’s/protocols differ!
‘DATA is only sent ONCE’
CACHING FOR LOCAL DELIVERY
VIRTUAL WINDOW EXPANSION
Lets examine how latency can affect performance......
Bandwidth ………………No it is not the issue
Due to the chatty nature of the application it is the latency that KILLS performance!
Therefore, by eliminating all unnecessary round-trips the application performance is dramatically improved.
1Mb doc. file creates on average 1300 RPC’s (each involving a round trip)
LAN Speed 1 –2msec………………..1.3 to 2.6sec
100msec……………………………..2 mins +
GARTNER-re WAFs Technology:
The benefits are measurable and sometimes even dramatic, with WAN access
for some applications reduced by as much as 90%
What is the ‘best-fit’ technology?
Each Vendor has good WAFs performance improvement but what other applications is the customer running?
So what differentiates them?
Multi-Data Centre File Access
Other Appliance optimisation
QoS – VOIP
Understanding the requirements
Profiling the infrastructure!
Providing an unbiased recommendation as to the Vendor of choice!

Legislation and Regulation
Consolidation – no more DC space, £40m+ new DC
Business Growth – Exotics (Hedge)
Real Time Data for market competitive advantage – monte carlo prices
No more available electricity from that sub station – 2000 + blades no more electricity
Solution - lateral thinking move the paradigm - VDI
Physical to Virtual of Desktop
VMware on brick systems 4 socket best/earliest ROI
Power Saving £hundreds pa per seat
280 watts from desktop to datacentre
Follow the sun from same back end infrastructure 3 Geos
Blades purchased for Business Growth/Comp Adv – Bank makes rev/profit – funds VDI projectCase Study Illustration Investment Bank in Canary Wharf
