Use Cases

Optimized Internet Performance for Cloud / SaaS

Cloud applications like AWS, Salesforce, and Office365 perform poorly on todays enterprises networks because of two shortcomings in the WAN. One is due to a shortage of bandwidth, the other is due to an inefficient traffic path through Centralized DMZs. SD-WAN solves both of these problems.

View Use Case

Network-Service Insertion / Service Chaining

Enabling Layer 4–7 network services like firewalls, load balancers and IPS in today’s enterprise networks is a complicated process that can take weeks or months. With SD-WAN, network services can be consolidated at a few locations and advertised across the network. Centralized policies can direct traffic to these services, on demand.

View Use Case

Business Partner Network

Enterprises are looking for a reliable manner to onboard partners and securely partition them from the rest of the network, thus protecting sensitive resources and isolating any breaches. SD-WAN technology with features such as segmentation, centralized policies and automated certificate management meet these requirements.

Packet Pushers: Revealing the SD-WAN Transformation of Kindred Healthcare, 77 Energy & Freedom Pay

Live From New York at ONUG Fall 2016

SD-WAN technology has matured to reach large-scale deployments in multiple industries. During the ONUG conference in fall 2016, multiple Viptela customers came together to discuss their SD-WAN strategy and solution execution. The analyst duo, Greg Ferro and Ethan Banks, of Packet Pushers had an in-depth discussion with three enterprises to understand their technical and business reasons for the migration. They also uncovered the operational due diligence needed for migrating from MPLS to SD-WAN.

Network Architects Talk SD-WAN

The Packet Pushers duo of Greg Ferro and Ethan Banks interview network and security architects from three Fortune-500 enterprises who are in process of testing and deploying SD-WAN in large scale. The discussion covers the importance of transport-agnostic WAN, centralized management, visibility and application-aware routing. And how these enterprises will benefit from the SD-WAN architecture.

Software Defined WAN on Packet Pushers

Featuring the Packet Pushers duo of Greg Ferro & Ethan Banks

As SDN gains rapid traction, SD-WAN is emerging as the leading use-case. Aging WAN architectures are severely impacting enterprise applications; WAN optimization can only address a short-term capacity problem. Famed analysts Greg Ferro and Ethan Banks dig deeper into the real solutions to solve the bigger problems of circuit costs, network rigidity and poor cloud performance.



WAN Business Challenges

A CIO’s Perspective on Network Infrastructure

The aging WAN architectures are rigid, complex and highly expensive. It is not aligned with the enterprise application needs. SD-WAN technology is evolving the MPLS WANs. The solution empowers enterprises significantly reduce costs, dramatically improve time to enable new services with robust encryption mechanisms.

The Software-Defined WAN Architecture

Network World paper highlights the major challenges in the WAN

This Network World paper highlights the major challenges in the WAN and the architectural requirements for a network transformation. Building on Zeus Kerravala’s thesis that Software-Defined WAN (SD-WAN) is now a business imperative, it discusses how SDN-based principles are able to enable a cost-effective and flexible solution.
