The Vision for the Future

We believe that work is no longer just one place. Employees must be able to work from the office—wherever that may be—work from home, and work from anywhere. And they should also have access and quality of experience anytime. At VMware, we have always been focused on both customer concerns, such as an inconsistent user experience while working remotely, as well as IT Ops concerns, such as difficulty bringing up and managing the growing number of remote sites. COVID-19 and the move to work from home have only exacerbated these concerns and expanded the number of sites in a network.

Our SD-WAN solution addresses these challenges whether they stem from legacy architectures or a dramatically altered business environment. VMware SD-WAN delivers more than just network improvements. We have invested and continue to invest in our vision for the future.

Executing on Our Vision

Thousands of customers around the world have chosen VMware because of our product capabilities, ease of deployment and management, and our ability to deliver dramatically improved network and application performance. We have been recognized and selected in competitive situations for the following reasons:

  • Superior application performance, especially of real time applications like voice or UCaaS
  • Better visibility/control to manage even large complex networks from a single pane of glass
  • Gateway service provides a lower TCO, speed deployment time, and better SaaS/Cloud application access experience
  • Integrated, stateful firewall provides perimeter security
  • Better resiliency to compensate for bandwidth limitations
  • Reduction in downtime through redundant links
  • Dynamic Multipath Optimization™ (DMPO) technology that helps choose the optimal network path and implements on demand remediation if required, even on a single link
  • Seamless cloud on-ramp to Azure, AWS, Google Cloud Platform and Alibaba
