Thinking Outside of the Box with Intelligent Routing and an Outcome-Driven Approach

Every network must route traffic – whether it’s voice, video, data or more. That’s a given. Because of this, routers became a staple of legacy infrastructures, with every location in the network using one and heavily depending on its capabilities to keep the business functional. BUT routing is not a function that can only be performed by routers. In fact, with the advent of software-defined networks, it is no longer necessary and can be better leveraged as a virtual network function to take full advantages of the benefits of a software base and of the cloud. And to take it one…

Still Using a Branch Router? Maybe It’s Time to Reconsider

Today’s network looks and behaves very differently than networks of decades past. The days of transmitting just data or simple files across private and public networks is over and now big packet requirements that enable video and voice is commonplace. The tidal shift to cloud-delivered services and applications is the new norm and the corporate network must be enabled to support the exponential bandwidth requirements that accompany this shift. A staple of the network infrastructure has always been the branch router, installed at each remote location to route network traffic to other parts of the network or back to the…

Why I Believe VeloCloud Won Awards, Recognition, Partners and Customers in 2015

December 28, 2015

All in all, and by any measure, it’s been a successful and interesting year for VeloCloud. Every CEO wishes for industry awards (12 in 2015), and more importantly, customers (over 100 in 2015) and partners (over 30 in 2015). However, if you ask what caused this success in 2015 it comes down to two key things, “simplicity” and “affordability.” You could make the argument that the WAN market is now ready for SD-WAN (Software-Defined Wide Area Networking). You could also make the argument that perhaps having a simple and affordable WAN alternative like VeloCloud’s SD-WAN solution has helped to make the…

“In design, one plus one equals three sometimes” – Josef Albers The Open Networking User Group (ONUG) is having its Fall 2015 conference this week at New York University’s Kimmel Center. It was six months ago that VeloCloud successfully exceeded all ten ONUG Software-Defined Wide Area Network (SD-WAN) tests at ONUG Spring 2015. Over the last six months, the SD-WAN market has continued to mature. Enterprises and Service Providers – driven by the need for simplified deployments, assured application performance and security over internet or hybrid transport, for both cloud and enterprise applications – are beginning to experience real benefits by…

Right Place, Right Time

I had the good fortune of attending Cisco Live last week. VeloCloud SD-WAN cloud networking technology works nicely with the Cisco IWAN (Intelligent WAN) solution. The reason we were invited to Cisco Live was to demonstrate what our cloud-delivered SD-WAN technology could do. Turns out VeloCloud makes Cisco IWAN an even more powerful solution by creating significant bandwidth across one or more links. A single link gets noticeable improvement and with two or more links you start to get exponential improvement in bandwidth and quality. In fact, the VeloCloud Edge software ran as a virtual instance on the router itself…
