  • What To Ask Your Vendor on Enterprise SD-WAN Capabilities What To Ask Your Vendor on Enterprise SD-WAN Capabilities Ramesh Prabagaran, VP Product Management, Viptela Recorded: Jan 20 2017 46 mins
    What are the absolute essential requirements in an SD-WAN solution? Although Gartner has defined the four key requirements for SD-WAN (see below), there are some more critical features required to meet the enterprise-grade capabilities. For example, network segmentation for different kinds of applications is a widely deployed feature across all major industries, primarily to isolate critical applications and to reduce the attack surface during vulnerabilities.

    This webinar will more broadly cover the essential enterprise SD-WAN features and how they translate to common deployment scenarios in different industries. These features include:

    - Overlay capability over MPLS, Broadband and LTE
    - Unified and centralized management of all WAN infrastructure
    - Network segmentation with per-segment topologies
    - Predictable Application SLA with centralized policies and real-time traffic steering
    - Mature routing capabilities with BGP, OSPF, VRRP, and IGMP
    - Unified and centralized management of all WAN infrastructure
    - Robust-zero trust WAN security including authentication, encryptions, segmentation and service chaining

    As a background, here are Gartner’s four key requirements for SD-WAN:
    - SD-WAN solutions provide a lightweight replacement for traditional WAN routers, and are agnostic to WAN transport technologies (that is, they support MPLS, Internet, Long Term Evolution [LTE], etc.).
    - Based on business and/or application policies, SD-WAN solutions allow for load sharing of traffic across multiple WAN connections in an efficient and dynamic fashion.
    - SD-WAN solutions dramatically simplify the complexity associated with management, configuration and orchestration of WANs.
    - SD-WAN solutions must provide secure VPNs, and have the ability to integrate additional network services and offload Internet-destined traffic closer to the edge of the network.

  • Data Center Consolidation and Simplification with Hyperconverged Data Center Consolidation and Simplification with Hyperconverged Sushant Rao, Sr. Director Product & Solutions Marketing, DataCore Software Recorded: Jan 18 2017 40 mins
    Server virtualization was supposed to consolidate and simplify IT infrastructure in data centers. But, that only “sort of happened”. Companies do have fewer servers but they never hit the consolidation ratios they expected. Why? In one word, performance.

    Surveys show that 61% of companies have experienced slow applications after server virtualization with 77% pointing to I/O problems as the culprit.

    Now, with hyperconverged, companies have another opportunity to fulfill their vision of consolidating and reduce the complexity of their infrastructure. But, this will only happen if their applications get the I/O performance they need.

    Join us for this webinar where we will show you how to get industry leading I/O response times and the best price/performance so you can reduce and simplify your infrastructure.
