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.
