As more applications move to the cloud, the old approach of backhauling traffic over MPLS to a centralized internet gateway via a hub-and-spoke architecture is no longer relevant. It is expensive and introduces unnecessary latency that negatively impacts user experience.
To support a cloud transition and deliver a fast user experience, enterprise network architects are re-evaluating the design of their WAN architectures to find ways to route internet traffic locally, and to take advantage of inexpensive broadband internet services, often turning to VMware Cloud-Delivered SD-WAN simplifies how traffic is steered and provides bandwidth expansion for the branch. It also provides direct access to cloud applications through a distributed system of VMware SD-WAN Gateways, a cloud-based VMware SD-WAN Orchestrator and a branch platform, VMware SD-WAN Edge. Using broadband along with MPLS as the transport mechanism, Dynamic Multi-Path Optimization steers traffic on a per packet basis to the optimal path as well as remediates transmission degradations. By defining policies in the cloud via a single interface, organizations can easily deploy new applications and services, and manage policies across a large number of locations.
VMware Cloud-Delivered SD-WAN by VeloCloud simplifies connecting branches to the internet, by leveraging multiple network connection types (broadband, LTE, and MPLS) and assuring optimal performance over any type of links
