MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., September 9, 2015
MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. — Sept. 9, 2015 — VeloCloud, the Cloud-Delivered SD-WAN company, announced today that it has joined the Console NSP Partner Program to provide its customers and partners access to Console, the enterprise software and interconnection platform that is changing the way businesses directly connect to their customers, vendors, and partners.
The Console NSP Partner Program enables network service providers (NSPs) to offer customers direct access to Console for network-to-network and enterprise-to-enterprise collaboration globally. Upon establishing a network-to-network interface (NNI) with a Console Node in one or more global regions, the NSP partner can offer customers direct access to Console. The partner program also provides NSP partners marketing resources to highlight their direct access offering with Console.
The Console software and interconnection platform provides a secure, simple and faster way for companies across the globe to directly connect to business-critical cloud providers, SaaS providers, and partners. Console’s network automation technology provides customers direct access to a global ecosystem without the configuration complexity.
“VeloCloud’s Cloud-Delivered SD-WAN enables performance for mission-critical and real-time applications over any last mile transport, including Internet, from branch edges to our unique network of cloud gateways,” said Steve Woo, vice president products and co-founder of VeloCloud. “With this collaboration, our gateways can take advantage of the Console software and interconnection platform to directly access SaaS and cloud infrastructure providers.”
VeloCloud’s SD-WAN solutions enable enterprises to automate branch WAN deployments, assure performance to cloud and enterprise applications, and allow enterprise IT to roll out multiple virtual services to the branch. SD-WAN control enables application traffic to be carried independently of the underlying transport layer, enabling flexibility, best availability and performance while dramatically reducing IT complexity in the branches.
Using the Console platform, VeloCloud now extends guaranteed bandwidth, low latency and reliability from the VeloCloud Cloud-Delivered SD-WAN to a broad set of SaaS, cloud and IaaS providers.
“As an SD-WAN pioneer, VeloCloud is expanding the high performance access options available for enterprises,” said Al Burgio, CEO, Console. “With our complementary solutions, we can further leverage SDN to improve the performance of cloud and enterprise applications.”
