You finished moving your applications to the cloud. The project went live, and you hoped that soon you would be reaping immense benefits from your cloud investment. You wait. And wait some more. And then reality strikes. Mainstream network technologies that build up most enterprise networks of today were not built to handle the dynamic, anytime anywhere accessibility of workloads in a cloud environment. To truly reap the benefits of a cloud strategy, you need to compliment it with a network that is intelligent, cloud-native, secure and still cost-effective. SD-WAN is your answer. Enter the Cloud Transformation Era Enterprises are…

SD-WAN: More than a Hybrid WAN

June 7, 2017

Companies looking to expand their WAN networks are rich in choices: They can stick with a traditional WAN or go with a hybrid or SD-WAN architecture. Given the costs and provisioning delays associated with traditional WANs, a growing number of companies are turning to hybrid or SD-WAN. It only makes sense: Because they facilitate the use of direct internet access (broadband) as an alternative method of branch connectivity. Hybrid and SD-WANs are much lower in cost than MPLS WANs. However, there are distinct differences between hybrid WAN and SD-WAN architectures that are worth noting, especially for companies looking for more…

SD-WAN: Fueling the Channel Shift to Recurring Revenue

The channel is known for sometimes adapting to change at a snail’s pace. Their business has, for years, been served well by technology vendors who relied on them as conduits for their hardware sales (and sometimes installation services). And, for those resellers—whose sales can add up to hundreds of thousands of dollars per transaction—there hasn’t been a good reason to change. The technology landscape is evolving, however, and more resellers are waking up to a new reality. Technology trends such as cloud applications and resources, along with the Internet of Things, are putting intense pressures on traditional networking infrastructure, and…

It’s been an exciting year for SD-WAN technology. Not only have the leading industry analysts been bullish, but this year saw a major uptick in the number of high-profile service providers adopting the technology for their customers. I firmly believe the pace of SD-WAN adoption is only going to accelerate and further evolve into new markets. What follows are my top five predictions for SD-WAN in 2017. 1. Software-Defined Security (SD-Security) will be the Next Big Revenue Driver for Service Providers Already Capitalizing on SD-WAN Industry Solutions According to IDC, by 2020, the SD-WAN industry solutions market will grow to…

New Versa CEO Kelly Ahuja talks about the pace of change in business and technology, and how every company needs to move with speed and scale to win. The world of cloud, mobility and applications has gotten us on a path to the Internet of Everything. The need for speed is driving every business to rethink their infrastructure and network. The benefits of Cloud have made it compelling for businesses to adopt a ‘shrinking data center’ approach. This, combined with the increased adoption of cloud-based applications by lines of business, requires a change in architecture of the wide-area network and…

The growth of software-defined WAN (SD-WAN) has created new opportunities for distributed enterprises to better manage their WAN environments, but it has also given rise to several incorrect assumptions about the technology and how it’s used. It’s something that happens with any new technology. As the technology gains attention and acceptance in the market, some misconceptions about it are also bound to spring up. Here are three of the biggest myths that surround SD-WAN … and the real story behind them: #1: Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) will be entirely replaced by public Internet transport connections The real story: The reasoning behind…

NFV vs. SDN: What’s the Difference?

September 27, 2016

Telecommunications companies have taken a strong interest in SDN. At the same time, more enterprise use cases for NFV have been emerging. Network functions virtualization (NFV) and software-defined networking (SDN) are related and both use network abstraction. However, SDN separates and abstracts the control plane into software from the data plane, which remains in hardware, and NFV is a combination of separating wholesale network and security functions into specific software, then service chaining them. NFV: Not Just for Telcos When network function virtualization (NFV) first started making headlines about four years ago, the initial use cases for the technology had…

A recent IDG report predicted that the nascent software-defined wide area network (SD-WAN) industry, worth a mere $225 million last year, will experience a 90 percent compound annual growth rate over the next five years to become a $6 billion industry by 2020. SNS Research revealed that by the end of 2020, service provider investments in network function virtualization (NFV), SD-WAN and software-defined networking (SDN) will total more than $18 Billion. The Growth Drivers Telcos are aggressively jumping on the NFV and SDN bandwagon, targeting deployments across a multitude of areas. SNS Research said that operators are driven by the…

The Bigger Picture (of WAN and Branch Networks)

November 7, 2015

If you’ve been reading IT trade publications lately, you may have seen a new networking sector called software-defined WAN (SD-WAN). SD-WAN provides several value propositions for the enterprise in the form of lower connectivity costs by adding broadband/Internet options to your MPLS WAN, improved application performance through “app-aware” routing, and reduced complexity and operational delays by centrally managing branch appliances with zero-touch provisioning. But it doesn’t take a hardened network manager (or IT purchasing department analyst) to conclude that while SD-WAN improves connectivity, key branch services like security and WAN optimization are not part of the solution. Hence branch architectures…
