As many of you know, existing technologies for accessing data within an enterprise across various geographic locations require data to be transferred and replicated, leading to reduced productivity, inefficiencies and delayed business insights or even insights based on stale data. In addition, having to send a copy of data to every user that requires it, leads to copy sprawl, data management challenges and compromised data security. Even with data transfer, data arrives at the destination in an unpredictable time and performance varies with data type/size and application. This session will show ways to instantly access and operate on data sets over any distance, without the need to copy and with local-like performance. The speaker will discuss how transforming the enterprise WAN into a Global LAN lets enterprises leverage modern business tools from video editing to AI/ML engines, leading to more efficient business processes. This is achieved through RDMA over WAN; the speaker will include a demo and several use cases.
