Simplified Networks with Improved Agility
Networks today must address an increased business appetite for faster, service-based delivery of IT. This is driven by real-time business requirements and the availability of viable options outside of traditional corporate IT. This has exposed suboptimal network operation paradigms (including static and manual provisioning and configuration activities), which increase time-to-delivery services, lower network availability, increase operational expenditures and making it increasingly more difficult to scale the environment.
Imagine if you had a network platform that could help you transform your business, accelerate time to revenue while reducing operational costs and enabling deployment of new services with the speed of light. Together with the industry leading IT technology partners, open APIs and IT orchestration tools, we can help you cloud enable your business, improve business agility and provide unmatched operational efficiency.
SD-WAN is a rapidly emerging technology forecasted by Gartner to be implemented by 30% of all enterprises in all their branches by 2019. According to Forrester 90% of Network Managers are looking to evolve their WAN using a software-defined approach.
The reasons for this are straightforward as the technology lowers total cost of ownership, increase flexibility and agility, improves utilization of WAN resources and increase security.
Next Generation data center networks must address an increased business appetite for faster, service-based delivery of IT. This is driven by real-time business requirements and the availability of viable options outside of traditional corporate IT.
The ability to improve and simplify network operation activities to align more closely with business goals and broader data center agility is a top motive for supporting the enterprise digitalization.
SDN will address the changing size and density within the data center and account for shifts in application traffic patterns as well as provide solutions that are open and standards-based, to increase interoperability, foster innovation and reduce vendor lock-in.
As companies make the ‘digital transformation’ they need visibility and insight into their network and application performance more than ever because their business depends on it. However, it’s hard to achieve because of all the added IT complexity.
Network Performance Management helps IT operation with rapid access to the KPI dashboard, network visibility, detection of performance issues and root cause analysis.
As companies are building hybrid networks to address increased cloud adoption they now see WAN optimization as just one feature needed for WAN designs. Vendors are responding by adding functionality that supports hybrid WAN.
Traditional WAN technology just no longer cut it as data volume and complexity keeps on increasing. To be competitive today’s businesses can’t risk waiting hours or even days on their data transfer over the WAN. To fully utilize data and gain the optimal ROI, it is critical to have the ability to capture, analyze and employ to and from multiple off-site backup locations while at the same time reducing time to access and data back-up windows.
