Enterprises Can Now Seamlessly Extend their Wide Area Networks to Public and Hybrid Microsoft Cloud Computing Environments

SAN JOSE, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Viptela, Inc., the Software-Defined WAN (SD-WAN) company, today announced that its SD-WAN platform can extend a customer’s Wide Area Network (WAN) into the Microsoft Azure public cloud environment. An Enterprise can now treat their Azure Virtual Network (VNET) resource as a branch and benefit from all the SD-WAN capabilities offered by the Viptela platform. All Viptela elements can also be deployed on a Hyper-V hypervisor.

Viptela will demonstrate its SD-WAN platform integration with Microsoft Azure clouds and applications at Microsoft Ignite Conference Booth 164 from September 26 – 29.

The Viptela SD-WAN platform provides ubiquitous connectivity, zero-trust security, end-to-end segmentation with application aware SLA and QoS policies for enterprise WANs that span data centers, branches, remotes offices and cloud resources. It enables organizations to mix and match a variety of connections from different service providers including MPLS, broadband, 3G/4G LTE, satellite and point-to-point links and manage them as a single network. With Viptela, cloud applications running on Microsoft Azure provide the same user experience as if they were hosted in a company’s own data centers.

“Microsoft Azure, Office 365 and Skype for Business are pervasive application services used by our customers,” said Ramesh Prabagaran, Vice President of Product Management for Viptela. “The ability of the Viptela SD-WAN platform to integrate Enterprise WANs with Azure public cloud resources, creates one ubiquitous, optimized and easy to manage connectivity fabric.”
