March 29, 2017

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…

February 16, 2017

In our last post, we talked about the benefits of network function virtualization (NFV) for managed service providers. Taking a step further, we’ll now examine how providers that deploy NFV can further benefit from this rapidly growing industry trend of evolving previously hardware-centric networks by leveraging security technologies into software-based services. A core element of NFV is the virtualized network function (VNF), which is a software-based or virtualized version of a specific function such as a next-generation firewall (NGFW). Employing VNFs goes far beyond just converting from point hardware to virtualized software instances such as an NGFW. VNFs, which are…

Software-defined wide area networks (SD-WANs) and network function virtualization (NFV) are among the most talked about technologies in the networking and communications industries, and in this first of a two-part series, we will explore the benefits they bring to service providers. Part two will explain how service providers can leverage software-defined security (SD-Security). Providers understand that to gain market share and deal with the constant evolution of enterprise and consumer demands for new services, they are going to have to re-architect their networks. Interestingly, providers are quickly realizing that, while initial advantages and drivers towards virtualization were reduction in Capex…

WAN optimization technologies have for years been the go-to solutions for improving enterprise application performance across the WAN. The WAN is changing though, and traditional WAN optimization technologies may soon not be enough on their own. The rise of software-defined WAN (SD-WAN) provides enterprises with greater control over WAN operations, promising more efficiency and effective application management across the entire corporate WAN infrastructure. Traditional WAN optimization technologies aren’t about to disappear of course, but the challenges presented by the current — and future — state of the WAN beg for more than basic application optimization. That’s where SD-WAN technologies can…

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…

As with any startup, the courage and sacrifices necessary to make an endeavor successful are difficult to justify, because the possibility of success is equally balanced with a likelihood of disappointment– and therein lies the dilemma.
