The Evolution of SD-WAN as a Platform

Enterprises are transforming their business to stay competitive in today’s rapidly changing digital world and IT must keep pace with these evolving business requirements. Enterprise WAN is no exception--enterprise IT must transform the WAN edge to be the cloud and compute edge, to ensure end-to-end application performance and continuity, and to do all of this and more in an agile, scalable, secure and cost-effective fashion.

SD-WAN has emerged as the enabler of WAN transformation. It has quickly evolved in a few short years from a connectivity infrastructure to a services platform. An ideal SD-WAN platform must encompass built-in and extensible security, support services such as analytics and application performance monitoring, an optimized migration path to a hybrid/multi-cloud strategy, and much more.

Join this webinar to learn more about the vision and evolution of SD-WAN as a platform, and why VMware is the undisputed leader to deliver this vision. Steve Woo, senior director of product and co-founder of VeloCloud, now part of VMware, will share his insights based on years of experience in the SD-WAN space.

  • Ensuring Healthcare Networks for the Perfect Storm Recorded: Apr 22 2020 55 mins
    Mary Swigart, Global Manager- Network Solutions GE Healthcare & Puneet Shetty, Product Line Manager at Nyansa , VMware
    Your network is NOT what you should be concerned with right now. But it could be. Conservative planning for unpredictable events helps to ensure patient safety and staff effectiveness. As the number of patients in hospitals increases exponentially, so does the number of medical devices in use and the amount of data as well. Now, more than ever, connectivity and interoperability is essential to the lives of patients and healthcare workers. Increased connectivity of devices may mean less unnecessary exposure for patients and clinical staff. The entire ecosystem, relies on a robust network infrastructure that can withstand large increases in traffic, and proactively notify technicians of potential failures and pain points before they occur.

  • Redesign your WAN for a Cloud-centric World Recorded: Mar 25 2020 36 mins
    Roopa Honnachari, Industry Director at Frost and Sullivan & Michael Leonard, Product Manager at VMware
    The impact of cloud computing on enterprise data centers is irreversible. In the 2019 Frost & Sullivan Enterprise Cloud survey, 54% of the IT decision makers agreed to the statement, “the cloud is the most critical part of our digital transformation strategy.” This is not surprising as cloud adoption rates continue to grow every year, with nearly 60% of the IT decision makers indicating they currently use cloud infrastructure as a service in their organization. As enterprises embrace hybrid and multi-cloud architectures to support distributed employees, suppliers and partners, there is an increased focus on application and network security. The traditional wide area network (WAN) architecture with the traffic being backhauled to headquarter location before reaching the end user does not work for the current cloud-centric era. Thanks to software-defined WAN (SD-WAN) technology, the enterprise WAN can now transform to be more cloud friendly, and user friendly, ensuring anytime, anywhere access to enterprise applications.

    As cloud becomes an integral part of your business's digital transformation strategy, you need to redesign your WAN to ensure a successful cloud strategy. Join us on this webinar to learn about the key trends driving enterprise adoption of SD-WAN; the impact of evolving enterprise hybrid IT architecture on the enterprise WAN, and how VMware SD-WAN by VeloCloud can help your organization deploy an optimized and secure WAN to support your cloud strategy.

  • Secured SD-WAN - with VMware SD-WAN by VeloCloud Recorded: Mar 18 2020 64 mins
    Bob Brewer, National Solutions Director - Networking, ePlus | Matt Cooley, Manager- Emerging Solutions, VMware
    It’s no secret that in today’s era of Digital Transformation, more and more large enterprise organizations are deploying Software-Defined wide area networking, or SD-WAN. But with this transformation from MPLS only/centric WAN to SD-WAN, many organizations are concerned that end point/edge/branch access will compromise security, end-to-end performance, and simplicity of operations.

    In this webinar, you will learn that adding full meshed, site-to-site SD-WAN solutions to edge and branch locations does not compromise the security and unified threat platform.

    We will dive into the details of Security in an SD-WAN Infrastructure and Secured SD-WAN Everywhere! using VMware SD-WAN by VeloCloud. This security ecosystem that integrates with VMware SD-WAN by VeloCloud ensures the protection of the organization from risks by enforcing Intent Based Networking, Segmentation, and Access Controls to reduce attacks associated with lateral movement, compromised credentials and lack of network visibility.

    Join us on March 18 to hear about an SD-WAN deployment that covers end-to-end security as the integral component of the solution.
