vEdge Cloud

Product Datasheet

PRODUCT OVERVIEW

Viptela vEdge Cloud is a software router platform that
supports entire range of capabilities available on the
physical vEdge-100, vEdge-1000 and vEdge-2000 router
platforms. The vEdge Cloud router is offered as a virtual
machine (VM) that can be deployed in the variety of
private, public and hybrid cloud computing environments.
It is supported on all major hypervisor platforms.

Viptela vEdge Cloud router utilizes Intel DPDK
infrastructure to ensure the most optimal performance
on x86 platforms. The software is also capable of utilizing
the AES-NI encryption offload technology available on
most Intel platforms. AES-NI offers optimized IPSec
performance when utilizing AES encryption algorithms.

DEPLOYMENT USE CASES

The vEdge Cloud routr targets the following main
deployment use cases:

  • 1Extend Viptela overlay into public
    cloud environments
  • 2Virtualized WAN router

EXTEND VIPTELA OVERLAY INTO PUBLIC CLOUD ENVIRONMENTS

Hybrid cloud is now the new norm for Enterprises. With hybrid cloud, certain enterprise workloads remain within the boundaries of
the private data centers, while others are hosted in the public cloud environments, such as Amazon AWS and Microsoft Azure. This
approach provides enterprises the utmost flexibility of consuming compute infrastructure as required.

Viptela SD-WAN solution allows extending ubiquitous connectivity, zero-trust security, end-to-end segmentation and application
aware QoS policies of the organizational wide area network into the Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) public cloud environments.

Transport independent nature of the Viptela SD-WAN solution allows leveraging variety of connectivity methods in the active-active
fashion by securely extending SD-WAN fabric into the public cloud environment across all underlying transport networks, such as
MPLS, broadband, 3G/4G LTE, satellite and point-to-point links.

Traffic segmentation policies allow creating multiple virtual private networks (VPNs) on top of a single fabric to functionally segregate
different types of traffic between the private and public cloud environments. This behavior results in the end-to-end segregation.
Application aware topologies and intelligent selection of the best performing path toward the public cloud in accordance with
desired SLAs ensure optimal overall quality of experience. Extensive QoS mechanisms present in Viptela vEdge Cloud software
router result in differentiated service for application traffic.

Following figure illustrates how Viptela vEdge Cloud router securely extends organizational wide area network into the public
cloud environment.

VIRTUALIED WAN ROUTER

A branch network consists of a number of elements. Operating, maintaining and connecting these elements can be simplified by
adopting a generic x86 platform on which discrete virtual network functions (VNFs) are instantiated. This form of service delivery is also known as the virtual customer premise equipment or the vCPE. With vCPE, the vEdge Cloud router assumes the role of the WAN router VNF providing secure wide area network connectivity from and to the remote office.

The following figure illustrates Viptela vEdge Cloud router solution elements.

Viptela SD-WAN solution supports numerous intelligent in-line and off-path methods of integrating vEdge Cloud router with therest of the vCPE elements. This integration includes routing, policy based routing, bridging and service insertion methods.

vEdge Cloud routers can be deployed as a redundant active-active pair leveraging either OSPF/BGP protocols for routed environments or VRRP for bridged environments. This deployment ensures higher degree of connectivity resilience and uptime for
the remote offices.
