Location-independent SharePoint

  1. 1. The case for location-independent SharePoint © RIVERBED TECHNOLOGY 1
  2. 2.

At the same time, we wanted to create a better experience for the clients.” © RIVERBED TECHNOLOGY 2
  3. 3. Adopting Office 365 is transformational “The planned transformation was enormous and included infrastructure upgrades, data center consolidation, adoption of new applications, and site expansion – all at the same time.” © RIVERBED TECHNOLOGY 3
  4. 4. SharePoint performance issues slow user adoption and ROI “Users in Johannesburg, South Africa, had to wait almost a minute for a certain SharePoint page to load. © RIVERBED TECHNOLOGY 4
  5. 5. SharePoint performance issues can delay time-to-market “If we could save our researchers just 10 or 15 minutes per day through faster application performance, this type of solution would pay for itself in months.” © RIVERBED TECHNOLOGY 5
  6. 6. Latency • TCP windowing SF to NY = 70ms Result: Uploads / downloads up to 30x slower • Bandwidth congestion Complex Sites • Multiple stylesheets, multiple javascripts 150 elements per page is not uncommon Result: SharePoint site access up to 4x slower • More images, bigger images Geo-replication Extra hardware, complex administration • Cost and complexity Result: $90K for additional farm • Global search architecture Custom Code Inherited code, developer turnover • Troubleshooting in production Result: hours reviewing log files to fix • QA in development © RIVERBED TECHNOLOGY 6
