How to Build a Successful SD-WAN Architecture

Who would have thought we would be calling MPLS circuits “legacy WANs?” But it’s true. MPLS’s high cost and complexity is weighing heavily on today’s enterprises and is no longer the most practical option for your agile business. Are you ready to learn how you can more quickly enable secure, always-on connectivity to cloud and enterprise applications with 99.99% availability over the Internet?

In this thought leadership webinar with Zeus Kerravala, principal research analyst with ZK Research, and Damon Ennis, SVP of products for Silver Peak, you will learn:

- Why MPLS is now being referred to as a legacy WAN architecture
- How enterprises can implement an SD-WAN overlay and leverage the Internet to reduce WAN costs and increase agility
- Architectural requirements and best practices for a successful SD-WAN deployment

Also, see peer case studies so you can learn industry best practices and DIY.

  • The Seamless Transition to the "Thin Branch" Recorded: Jun 13 2017 43 mins
    Derek Granath, VP Product Marketing and Rolf Muralt, VP Product Management
    Combining a high-performance SD-WAN solution with routing, a stateful firewall and WAN optimization in a single “thin branch” solution liberates enterprises from the cost, complexity and headaches associated with legacy router-centric branch office infrastructure. In this webinar, learn how an application-driven SD-WAN simplifies the WAN edge architecture, delivers greater business agility and lowers costs.

    Join us to hear how you can:
    •Simplify the WAN edge infrastructure to reduce CAPEX and OPEX
    •Streamline the management of branch WAN edge gear and transport services
    •Make the transition to an SD-WAN without risk
  • The Role of SD-WAN Managed Services in Today's Enterprise Recorded: Jun 7 2017 58 mins
    Roopa Honnachari, Frost & Sullivan; Paul Ruelas, Masergy and Nav Chander, Silver Peak
    SD-WANs enable enterprises to easily use multiple types of network services (MPLS, broadband, LTE) to simultaneously connect users to applications, quickly bring branch offices online and improve overall network and application performance.

    But, finding the right SD-WAN solution for your business can take time. Many enterprises are looking towards managed SD-WAN as a solution to simplify branch network deployments and find the best fit for their business.

    In this webinar, Frost & Sullivan analyst, Roopa Honnachari will share new industry data on managed SD-WAN and will host a discussion between Silver Peak and Masergy experts as they share insights on how managed services can enable enterprises to adopt SD-WAN in a seamless manner.

  • Tech Talk: Security and SD-WAN Recorded: May 23 2017 48 mins
    Derek Granath and Anusha Vaidyanathan
    The Internet is notoriously insecure – we hear about security breaches nearly every day. Discover the multiple security features of a Silver Peak SD-WAN, architected to ensure that all traffic moving across broadband Internet is highly protected. Got compliance requirements? Learn how micro-segmentation using business intent overlays helps organizations meet compliance mandates.
  • Tech Talk: WAN Op on Tap Recorded: May 3 2017 50 mins
    Derek Granath and Chris Rogers
    This webinar will clear up a common misconception that SD-WANs obsolete the need for WAN optimization. All the bandwidth in the world doesn’t diminish physical distance and therefore the latency across long distances. WAN opt is all about improving application performance over distance and transporting large data sets efficiently. No longer is it necessary to have WAN opt deployed across the entire network – just selectively where and when you need it.
  • Tech Talk: Internet Breakout - Sending SaaS Traffic to the Internet Recorded: Apr 12 2017 33 mins
    Derek Granath and Anusha Vaidyanathan
    With the increasing use of SaaS and cloud-based apps, backhauling all internet-bound traffic from the branch to headquarters wastes bandwidth and degrades performance. Learn how first-packet application visibility enables intelligent breakout of trusted apps directly to the internet while still directing unknown or suspicious apps to corporate security services for further inspection.

  • Not All SD-WANs Are Equal. Performance Matters! (EMEA Version) Recorded: Aug 25 2016 41 mins
    Zeus Kerravala is founder and principal analyst with ZK Research & Chris Rogers, Director of Cloud Solutions at Silver Peak
    The use of broadband Internet connections in SD-WAN environment has many benefits, however for any enterprise, performance and reliability cannot be compromised. An SD-WAN solution must include all the functionality needed to meet these essential requirements that deliver outstanding performance and Quality of Service by:

    •Actually improving the quality of the bandwidth you already have, instead of routing around it
    •Enabling centralized control and administration of network-wide policies
    •Providing detailed visibility into real-time and historical application and network trends
    •Allowing for the modular deployment of WAN optimization to insure performance when you need it, where you need it
    This all adds up to an enterprise-grade, performance-centric offering that allows your SD-WAN to rapidly connect users to the applications they need. Deployment times are reduced significantly and enterprises enjoy enhanced performance, visibility and control over the entire network.

  • Redefine Branch Office IT and Accelerate Remote Office Deployment Recorded: Jun 9 2016 64 mins
    Chris DeHoust, Sales Engineer Manager, Silver Peak and Chris Christian, Enterprise Product Group, Dell
    With applications progressively moving to the cloud, branch offices are challenged with connectivity issues and performance problems. Today’s IT environments still depend on MPLS as the backbone of the WAN; yet MPLS was not designed for today’s infrastructure. Add to this a highly distributed networking and services environment, and you have the recipe for an inefficient branch.

    This results in high costs, reduced time-to-market and the need for more onsite IT resources. Until now. Two industry leaders – Dell and Silver Peak Systems - have partnered to deliver a solution that solves this challenge.

    The combination of a Dell PowerEdge VRTX converging the branch’s network and a Silver Peak Software Defined WAN accelerating time to market with broadband connectivity rather than inflexible MPLS, organizations can finally experience the consolidated, easy to use, high performance network they require to be competitive.

    Join this webinar to learn how the Dell and Silver Peak joint solution can:

    oLower WAN OPEX by up to 90% through leveraging broadband vs MPLS
    oEnable fast remote office deployment within days, not months
    oEasily deploy integrated servers, storage and networking at the branch
    oRapidly and securely connect users to any application while eliminating latency
    oReduce RPOs by speeding up replication & backups
    oEnhance visibility to enterprise and SaaS applications
  • Building the Next Generation Branch Recorded: May 24 2016 60 mins
    Chris Rogers, Director of Cloud Infrastructure, Silver Peak and Amit Jain, Sr. Product Manager, Nutanix
    As companies expand and rapidly bring new branches online, the need arises to quickly establish connectivity to the datacenter and cloud applications - as well as build the extended network infrastructure. However, the skyrocketing cost and length of time required to connect users to applications via MPLS coupled with the disparate nature of the branch infrastructure is putting increased pressure on IT budgets and resources. While costs soar and time to market increases an organization’s competitiveness is compromised.

    Nutanix, delivering invisible infrastructure for next-generation enterprise computing and Silver Peak, the leader in building broadband and hybrid wide area networks, have partnered to deliver a combined solution that solves this problem – dramatically driving down costs, increasing performance and accelerating branch deployments.

    Join this webinar to learn how you can:

    •Eliminate under-utilized infrastructure silos, using up to 80% less space and 50% lower CAPEX
    •Save up to 90% in WAN OPEX by leveraging broadband vs MPLS
    •Speed up deployment with rapid connectivity, a turn-key infrastructure and zero-touch deployment of broadband WAN
    •Securely connect and accelerate remote office applications
    •Achieve centralized management and control with enhanced visibility into the network and applications
