The AppUX Problem

IT teams have evolved from making decisions based on infrastructure to solving business needs. The industry is abuzz about cloud, mobility, virtualization and more, but the fundamental requirements drill down to “Users” and “Applications”. Viptela has created an architecture blueprint to truly connect Users to Applications with all of the elements of simplicity, reliability and security using the Viptela Fabric.

The Viptela Blueprint

The Viptela Fabric is optimally placed in the infrastructure to control the user to application experience. With user fingerprinting techniques and Cloud / Datacenter intelligence, the fabric can secure and reliably provide a unique experience that allows IT to:

  • Control experience for a unique user and / or a unique application
  • Control access for a set of users based on business defined central logic (e.g. user-device-location based policies)
  • Contain and control experience for new Things that show up in the network, especially with the advent of edge computing / Industrial IOT
  • Centrally manage security posture by defining security policies that need to be applied to users or applications
