Rethink Networking for the Cloud Era white paper

Published By: Riverbed DE     Published Date: Oct 16, 2017
What is the key benefit of SD-WAN? To provide seamless access to digital services for end-users. But IT is more distributed, fragmentary, and dynamic than ever, with hybrid apps, hybrid networks, and remote and mobile users everywhere. Hardware-bound legacy networks can never fulfill the promise of seamless access. Taming the chaos of today’s IT requires a new approach to networking. This is the promise of software-defined wide area networks (SD-WAN)—the ability to use plain-language business policies to automate and orchestrate all the components of digital access. Read this white paper to learn how SD-WAN lets you: • Manage centrally from a cloud console with a comprehensive view of your connectivity fabric that spans and unifies datacenter/cloud apps, branch/mobile users, and enterprise/cloud networks. • Orchestrate globally using business policy-based automation to define quality of service and access privileges for all apps/users. • Deploy locally with zero touch via automated

SD- WAN in the Age of Digital Transformation

Published By: Fortinet EMEA     Published Date: Nov 26, 2018
Most organizations are in the midst of some form of digital transformation (DX), transforming how they bring products and services to the market—and ultimately deliver value to their customers. But DX initiatives also bring complexity for the network operations team. With business-critical services distributed across multiple clouds, this leads to potential performance issues, especially at branch locations. Given these realities, it is no wonder that software-defined wide-area network (SD-WAN) technology is rapidly going mainstream. Unfortunately, SD-WAN is an example of the paradox of DX: transformative technology can potentially move the business to the next level, but the expanded attack surface it creates can expose the organization to significant risk. That is why an SD-WAN deployment, like every other DX effort, should be accompanied by a security transformation (SX) that rethinks outdated principles, broadens protection beyond the data center, and integrates the security archit

SD-WAN Becomes the Network

Published By: VMware SD-WAN by VeloCloud     Published Date: May 20, 2019
The network of yesterday is not the network that can take businesses into the future. As mission critical enterprise applications move to the cloud, wide area network (WAN) must adapt to become agile, flexible, and scale rapidly. Leading IT trends such as Internet of Things (IoT), Software as a Service (SaaS), cloud storage, enterprise mobility, emerging transport alternatives, and globalization increase the importance of how network assets are leveraged and how the network is conceptualized. The advantages of public and private data centers and cloud-based applications are significantly diminished if the network is slow, inflexible, and unpredictable. Erratic network performance with high latency, jitter and packet loss can significantly impact user adoption, satisfaction, and overall corporate productivity. As connectivity options continue to emerge, end users are no longer tethered to the office or to the localized applications and services that were trademarks of a primary or branc

SD-WAN: Architecture Matters - 7 Questions to Ask When Evaluating SD-WAN Solutions

Published By: VMware SD-WAN by VeloCloud     Published Date: Feb 19, 2019
The Wide Area Network (WAN) is in the midst of a significant evolution. Software-defined WAN (SD-WAN) is the key factor driving this evolution and bringing along with it many transformational changes. SD-WAN has enabled several new WAN uses cases, such as enabling reliable, secure and high performance support of software-as-a-service (SaaS), cloud compute, cloud storage, cloud security and the ability to use non-deterministic Internet services to provide business-class transport. The traditional WAN architecture was ill equipped to support these new use cases. As is usually the case with an emerging market, the first entrants into the SD-WAN space were start-ups. However, given the ability of SD-WAN to support both traditional and emerging WAN use cases, the market has recently been flooded with a range of vendors, solutions and technologies offering varying types of SD-WAN solutions. While having differing types of solutions provided by numerous suppliers is potentially beneficial, it

Securing Your Branches for Direct Internet Access

Published By: Cisco     Published Date: Dec 08, 2015
Driven by budget pressures and the growth of cloud-hosted applications, mobility, and bandwidth-hogging applications such as video, many IT organizations are actively considering direct Internet access (DIA) at their branches. DIA offers two compelling benefits: (1) it can substantially reduce operating costs by freeing up costly WAN bandwidth for mission-critical applications, and (2) it offers a better experience for users accessing applications hosted in the public cloud.

The Role of Diversity and Redundancy in Enterprise Business

Published By: Spectrum Enterprise     Published Date: Mar 01, 2019
To support business continuity, many organizations eagerly avoid putting all their eggs in one basket. Understanding the critical role of last-mile connectivity and always-available Internet access, savvy firms utilize redundant wide area network (WAN) and Internet connections from multiple service providers to ensure network availability in addition to load balancing. Despite the good intentions, their Internet connectivity risks may still be in a single basket. That is because internet service providers (ISPs) and competitive local exchange carriers (CLECs) may operate using leased network infrastructure from the same incumbent local exchange carrier (ILEC).
