SteelFusion Hyper-Converged
Imagine the branch as a smartphone. A simple device with access to all the apps and data you need. When you buy a smartphone, you don’t get a backpack full of servers and storage to take with you too. All of your data is secure in the cloud, and available whenever you need it.
When you find a new app that makes you more productive, it takes mere seconds to make it available for use. And if you lose your smartphone, renewed access to all of your contacts, data and apps is only moments away.
That’s the power of SteelFusion Hyper Converged Edge and that’s the power of SteelFusion Zero Branch IT.

How it works?
With SteelFusion, branch recovery can be completed in minutes instead of days, dramatically reducing branch downtime, and the cost to the business associated with unplanned downtime.

Zero Branch IT

  • No Servers. No storage. No backup.
  • Instant provisioning. Instant recovery.
  • Complete data security. Full visibility
  • Apps that simply work.

Branch and Remote Office IT Challenges
As today’s enterprises add additional office locations, they are also adding expensive hardware and support challenges for IT. Valuable company data stored in these locations is often left unprotected. Without qualified IT staff on site to manage servers, storage and backup at the branch, it can take days, weeks or even months to provision new services, resolve application performance issues and recover from outages, directly impacting business productivity and ultimately business results.
