SDWAN Makes Life Easier for IT
It seems there is a lot of talk about SDWAN today. One of the biggest reasons being the better performance, easier management, and drastically reduced cost compared to traditional WAN technology like MPLS. Companies with multiple locations and important WAN needs have realized the benefits and reaping rewards.
But there are numerous benefits to many different types of companies besides just large multi-location enterprises. SDWAN has a little something for everyone.
Some SDWAN benefits include:
Never Experience Downtime Again
With SD-WANs unique approach to link aggregation, internet connection issues will not affect you, as long as there are two or more connections and at least one link remains operational. SDWAN aggressively monitors all links for state changes, throughput, packet loss, latency and jitter so that when your provider’s circuits are not up to snuff, your traffic will simply flow around the issue, no failover interrupts, just seamless traffic flow. Plus, no wasted costs of underused or unused standby backup circuits.
Reduce network complexity
Whereas today administrators need to have a whole range of skills to operate a network and even then it is prone to errors, failed upgrades, misconfigurations and security vulnerabilities, with SDWAN the network simply becomes ‘a utility’ that a qualified SDWAN provider takes care of for you, thereby reducing your operational costs and headaches.
Easily realize a multi-cloud strategy without compromising security or simplicity
How easy is it to extend your current legacy infrastructure to multiple cloud providers? What if it was as simple as the managed SDWAN provider deploying a secure edge into each cloud or SaaS provider and you’re done?
Track Your Network Quality
How well are your providers doing? What do they say when there is an outage? Hold them to task while at the same time know where the issues lie. Reports and analytics are easy to supply and show uptime, Mean Opinion Score (MOS), and much more.
Make home locations and temp location headaches a thing of the past
Deploying your private network becomes trivial with the right SDWAN service. You need a site for three months? No problem, just let the SDWAN provider spin it up and deploy with zero-touch.
Which SDWAN platform and solutions provider is right for you?
Well that is the million dollar question. It would seem that every ISP and managed service provider now offers one flavor of SDWAN or another and each seem to have their own twist. Some even go so far as calling the firewall they've been making for decades an SDWAN just because the firewall has always had multiple WAN ports! If any of that went over you r head, not to worry. We'll take care of you and make sure you're getting a real SDWAN solution from a highly qualified provider.
