5 Myths About Enterprise SD-WAN

Published By: Forcepoint     Published Date: Jun 06, 2019
Five false assumptions about SD-WAN By now, almost everyone knows something about software-defined-wide-area networking (SD-WAN). SD-WAN is getting a lot of buzz over its MPLS counterpart, but every innovation in tech comes with certain misconceptions—it’s just part of the territory. Can SD-WAN take the place of internet? SD-WAN doesn’t require on-premises hardware, right? Outside of cost, is it really better than MPLS? Read “Secure Enterprise SD-WAN Myths” for answers to these questions and more, clarity around SD-WAN’s advantages and limitations, and how Forcepoint can help you implement secure SD-WAN for your distributed enterprise. And yes—SD-WAN really is better than MPLS.

Acceleration 101 - What You Need To Know

Published By: F5 Networks Inc     Published Date: Jan 22, 2009
Getting your applications to work properly over a Wide Area Network (WAN) is a complex task, and it is not likely to get easier any time soon. Trends such as data center consolidation, the advent of Web 2.0 applications, and the move to web-based application delivery have only served to increase complexity and slow user response times. Often, the result is sluggish application response and at worst, abandoned applications and shopping carts due to slow or failed web page loads. The good news is that you can do something to improve application performance over slow or congested WAN networks. An Application Delivery Network can accelerate your applications and help make sure they’re secure, fast, and available.

Cisco Branch Infrastructure Powers the Hybrid WAN

Published By: Cisco     Published Date: Dec 21, 2016
IT has gone through a significant evolution over the past decade. Virtualization has changed the entire face of the data center, the network edge has become predominantly wireless and consumer devices reign supreme. However, one of the few areas of IT that has yet to evolve is the corporate wide area network (WAN). Managing the WAN is something network managers have always struggled with because WAN speeds are typically an order of magnitude, or more, slower than local area networks (LANs).

Doyle Research: SD-WAN Becomes the Network

Published By: VMware SD-WAN by VeloCloud     Published Date: Feb 19, 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

Exploring the Fundamental Differences Between Network Memory and Application Caching

Published By: Silver Peak     Published Date: Oct 28, 2013
Enterprises have long been battling the inherent performance limitations of Wide Area Networks (WANs) when delivering applications to remote offices. Caching emerged in the 1990’s as a potential way of addressing this problem, accelerating the performance of specific applications, such as web services, while reducing overall WAN traffic. While caching achieved reasonable success for a few short years, the market for these point products ultimately subsided as a result of several operational and functional limitations. Enterprises require an application acceleration solution that spans all types of traffic, one that is easy to manage, and 100% data coherency when supporting business-critical applications. This white paper will address these issues and offer a solution that addresses these enterprise requirements. The result is a complete solution for improved application delivery across a distributed enterprise environment.

IT Evolution to a Hybrid Enterprise Drives the Need for Location-Independent Computing

Published By: Riverbed     Published Date: Jul 22, 2015
As enterprise computing has evolved, businesses have been shifting to a “hybrid enterprise” where core applications and data can be located in private data centers and public clouds. The growth of hybrid cloud deployments accelerated the transition to hybrid wide-area networks (WANs). Private networks, such as MPLS, are being joined by Internet connections that offer a choice in delivery channels—costly, but predictable, networks for mission-critical loads and cheaper public networks for bulk loads such as data backups.
