From SD-WAN to secure Multi-Cloud

From SD-WAN to secure Multi-Cloud

Recent IHS Markit research shows enterprises are expecting to use on average 11 different cloud service providers (CSPs) by 2019 to meet all of their off-premises cloud services needs, both SaaS and IaaS providers, creating their own custom “cloud of clouds”, or Multi-Cloud. Connecting the enterprise branch office and on-premises data centers to each CSP separately creates a complex WAN management nightmare. Without proper application performance monitoring, security, analytics, and automated performance tuning to ensure SLA between enterprise sites and CSP DCs, the nightmare worsens.

This webinar explores the evolution of SD-WAN architecture to meet requirements for secure Multi-Clouds, solutions for service providers planning to offer Multi-Cloud connectivity services, and recommendations for enterprises using many different CSPs.  

Key topics for discussion:

  • SD-WAN and Multi-Cloud market dynamics
  • Challenges connecting all Multi-Cloud locations
  • Architectural options for a Multi-Cloud fabric
  • SD-WAN success cases
