What's Your SD-Vision?
Software-Defined Wide Area Networks (“SD-WAN”) are morphing to become a key enabler to many companies’ Digital future strategy. In 2020, SD-WAN has moved squarely into the technology mainstream, with planning initiatives underway within IT Teams across a wide array of industries. Connectivity has always been pivotal, but never before have there been such a variety of flexible options. With so many choices, the question quickly arises – what’s your SD-Vision?
- Are you aiming to eliminate costly MPLS and/or private line circuits supporting a current WAN?
- What applications drive your business, and how can you balance and monitor their performance with the right platform and provider during every step of a phased migration?
- How does today’s Cyber Threat surface change and alter your exposure depending on the options you select for interconnecting your sites?
- Are you struggling with bandwidth constraints creating a need for better content filtering?
- Do you have emerging needs spanning multiple clouds and Hyper Converged Infrastructure providers?
More than ever, the myriad of factors to consider, plus competing (often proprietary) technologies underpinning SD-WAN options create an environment in which in-depth, structured comparison is required. Having a vendor-agnostic partner with proven multi-vendor experience who will look out for your priorities throughout your evaluation can streamline the process.
