SD-WAN Architecture… Oh, You Mean There’s More Than One? By now, everyone gets the Traditional WAN, Hybrid WAN, SD-WAN thing. There’s ample talk in the industry about WAN trends. But are all SD-WANs created equal? Not so fast! An evaluation of the landscape could come in really handy. WAN architecture continues to morph and evolve influenced by new technologies, as well as the necessary practicality of incremental migration. Think of this as along two axes: from an on-premise to a cloud-based architecture in one dimension; and in the other dimension from a point product to a comprehensive SD-WAN offering.

Architecture Matters – With SD-WAN, it’s So Much Simpler!

Years ago a colleague developed UC features for an airline call center and they didn’t want the phones to ring—no, they said quite confidently, just make it dead simple and have the software auto-answer the next call immediately when the previous one disconnects. A ringing call wastes the customer’s and the agent’s time. Shaving just a few seconds off each call compounded into literally annual savings of millions for the airline. So what’s with all this fuss about SD-WAN architecture? You really want it just to be quicker, easier, simpler, less headache, no truck rolls. No logging individually into thousands…

Why I Am Ordering More Shades for VeloCloud’s Growing Team

By Sanjay Uppal
VP and GM of VeloCloud by VMware
July 7, 2016

When I basked in the glow of a banner year with record sales for VeloCloud in 2015 I could not imagine how good the first half of 2016 would turn out to be. But here I am with the half-yearly report highlighted by raising $27M in round C to secure our worldwide growth trajectory; receiving both the Cloud computing product of the year award and the IOPN  “Best Service or Solution” award; doubling our partner list and being named a “cool” company by Gartner. I was asked at the end of 2015 what I believed caused VeloCloud’s success and I…

George Caraker and Kennedy/Jenks – A Lifetime of Right Technology Choices

By Ravi Sharma
Director of Marketing
July 1, 2016

I think it’s rare when you find someone who has an uncanny instinct for identifying and implementing new, transformative technology advances; at the right time. George Caraker, Director of IT at VeloCloud customer Kennedy/Jenks is one of those people – an “early adopter” in the truest sense of the word. While a few risk takers bet on technologies barely out of the labs, many people hop on a technology’s bandwagon after a long time. Geoffrey Moore, author of the famous book and concept, Crossing the Chasm,  classifies them as  the conservative majority, and some as laggards. But adopting technologies at…

It’s July 4th! Claim Your Independence from Network Infrastructure Constraints Today

By Michael Wood

June 30, 2016

Throughout living memory humankind has craved independence. As the 4th of July rolls around once again, IT managers still salivate over the seemingly ever-receding promise of liberation—straining against the chains of antiquated and static network architecture and infrastructure, CPE lock-ins, best-effort Internet links performing with substandard packet loss rates, and highly complex VPN tunneling barely achieving adequate security. Not to mention the necessity for bandwidth overprovisioning to ensure decent throughput, session and flow-based routing, backhauling SaaS traffic through a data center that doesn’t host the application any longer just because that is how the pipes have always been connected and…
