As software-defined WAN (SD-WAN) continues to become a mainstream technology, its relationship to WAN Optimization (WANop) must be examined. At first glance, the two can appear alike, and are often erroneously mentioned as synonymous technologies. A deeper examination however, will reveal two distinct and highly complementary technologies with very limited feature overlap. This document aims to demystify the relationship between the two, outline the market shifts that have led to a reduced WANop sector, and provide a recommendation on deploying both technologies in a modern enterprise WAN.

oftware-Defined WAN, or SD-WAN for short, is at the leading edge of software-based networking deployments. SD-WAN offers significant business value for organizations with distributed branches in terms of business agility and the ability to leverage Internet bandwidth economics – put simply, cost savings. This Software-Defined WAN For Dummies book explains the way for IT and business managers to migrate to a distributed network which is less complex, more flexible and easier to manage. With this book, VMware and Dan Pitt make an important contribution to better understanding the future of WAN implementations.

The Wide Area Network (WAN) is in the midst of a significant evolution. Software-defined WAN (SD-WAN) is the key factor driving this evolution and bringing along with it many transformational changes. SD-WAN has enabled several new WAN uses cases, such as enabling reliable, secure and high performance support of software-as-a-service (SaaS), cloud compute, cloud storage, cloud security and the ability to use non-deterministic Internet services to provide business-class transport. The traditional WAN architecture was ill equipped to support these new use cases. As is usually the case with an emerging market, the first entrants into the SD-WAN space were start-ups. However, given the ability of SD-WAN to support both traditional and emerging WAN use cases, the market has recently been flooded with a range of vendors, solutions and technologies offering varying types of SD-WAN solutions. While having differing types of solutions provided by numerous suppliers is potentially beneficial, it

Der Siegeszug des Cloud Computing prägt längst die Art und Weise, wie Rechenzentren miteinander vernetzt sind. Der architektonische Ansatz, der den Netzwerken zunächst die fehlende Agilität und Schnelligkeit verleihen sollte, heißt Software-Defined Networking (SDN). Jetzt geht es um die Frage, wie das WAN so optimiert werden kann, dass es den dynamischen Anforderungen von Cloud-Anwendungen und -Diensten gerecht wird. Der Trend zu SD-WAN ist eine vergleichsweise junge Marktentwicklung, der die Einführung hybrider WAN-Architekturen voranging.Dieses Dokument bietet eine weltweite Marktprognose für SD-WAN-Produkte und -Services bis 2020. Die Ergebnisse im Überblick.

What is the key benefit of SD-WAN? To provide seamless access to digital services for end-users. But IT is more distributed, fragmentary, and dynamic than ever, with hybrid apps, hybrid networks, and remote and mobile users everywhere. Hardware-bound legacy networks can never fulfill the promise of seamless access. Taming the chaos of today’s IT requires a new approach to networking. This is the promise of software-defined wide area networks (SD-WAN)—the ability to use plain-language business policies to automate and orchestrate all the components of digital access. Read this white paper to learn how SD-WAN lets you: • Manage centrally from a cloud console with a comprehensive view of your connectivity fabric that spans and unifies datacenter/cloud apps, branch/mobile users, and enterprise/cloud networks. • Orchestrate globally using business policy-based automation to define quality of service and access privileges for all apps/users. • Deploy locally with zero touch via automated

Changing business needs and the drive toward cost efficiencies and performance mean an end to reliance on traditional, proprietary storage approaches. Modern storage infrastructure enables CIOs to tackle some of their biggest pain points and put their data to work rather than viewing that data as a cost center. Driven by a desire to be flexible and “do more with less,” IT leaders are embracing things like software-defined storage, because it emphasizes freedom and openness.

Virtualization and cloud computing can help your organization achieve significant savings in data center hardware costs, operational expenditures, and energy demands— while achieving improvements in quality of service and business agility. However, as data centers continue to transition from physical to virtual and now increasingly, cloud environments, traditional security can slow down provisioning, become difficult to manage, and cause performance lag. As you scale your virtual environment and adopt software defined networking, evolving your approach to security can reduce time, effort, and impact on CPU, network, and storage. Read this white paper to learn more about virtualization and cloud computing.

Software-defined architectures have transformed enterprises to become more application-centric. With application owners seeking public-cloud-like simplicity and flexibility in their own data centers, IT teams are under pressure to reduce wait times to provision applications. Legacy load balancing solutions force network architects and administrators to purchase new hardware, manually configure virtual services, and inefficiently overprovision these appliances. Simultaneously, new infrastructure choices are also enabling applications to be re-architected into autonomous microservices from monolithic or n-tier constructs. These transformations are forcing organizations to rethink load balancing strategies and application delivery controllers (ADCs) in their infrastructure.

The quick-service restaurant industry continues to be a favorite among consumers who look to the sector for a wide variety of food served quickly and at a low price. The speed and efficiency of QSRs, which include the emergent “fast casual” restaurants, match today’s on-the-go lifestyle of consumers across all ages who often are too busy to cook at home. That said, consumers expect their dining experience at a QSR to be comfortable with conveniences ranging from WiFi connectivity to ordering kiosks and dining area entertainment on large screens or even tableside tablets. They expect the information on menu boards to be accurate and up-to-date and their meal orders to be fulfilled quickly and accurately. Technology is a major enabler in meeting consumers’ expectations while simultaneously helping QSR locations increase operational efficiencies and quality of service.

Hospitality is a customer-focused industry, with a hotel brand’s reputation and ultimate success dependent on the quality of the experience of its guests. It is no surprise then, that digital transformation efforts within the hospitality sector are focused on technologies that improve the guest experience, from check-in to check-out and everything in between. Today’s travelers are digitally savvy, using their smartphones and mobile devices for a multitude of tasks. They expect a high-quality connection throughout the property and the ability to perform certain tasks from the hotel’s app, such as checking in and choosing their own room. They expect in-room entertainment beyond basic cable and in-room digital devices they can use to order food, book a massage or control the lighting, for example.

Retail has been transformed by technology in multiple ways, from the way customers interact with retailers to how products are offered and acquired. Indeed, the entire shopping experience has been redefined and expanded to enable customers to purchase products anytime, anywhere, with any device, from any number of retailers. Consumers’ changing shopping behaviors and their reliance on technology enables retailers to reach a wider swath of potential buyers, moving well beyond the borders of their physical store locations to new geographies and populations. That said, retailers must understand how to use technology effectively to draw in customers and entice them to purchase, as well as help them improve their operations and enable new, innovative ways to keep customers coming back.
