Challenges with Multi-Cloud Deployments

To meet digital transformations demands and unique requirements coming from various verticals such as business services, healthcare, retail and manufacturing, most enterprises nowadays have embraced multi-cloud solutions as their IT strategy. However, what enterprises expect to obtain from a multi-cloud solution is not merely an environment to port workloads across different clouds. First, the challenges created from such approach come in multiple aspects: deployment complexity, inconsistent network performance, unacceptable end user experience, and costly connectivity. Moreover, telcos and ISPs have long been relying on the existing legacy MPLS IP VPN service to connect branches and end-users to cloud-hosted applications. This long-established infrastructure is inefficient and lacks the flexibility of addressing diverse demands of cloud-first enterprises, not to even mention the IT headaches and challenges posed  by integration of new and legacy infrastructure .Hence, the multi-cloud deployment adoption requires flexibility, performance, agility, enhanced security infrastructure, and the ability to tailor solutions for unique applications while reducing operational costs.

SD-WAN: The Change Agent: Dynamic, Automation, Simplified

A managed smart Software-Defined WAN (SD-WAN) service can help enterprises accelerate their transition to a multi-cloud environment by facilitating the cloud deployment adoption while both simplifying WAN infrastructure and reducing connectivity costs.

As environments come in diverse sizes and shapes, the SD-WAN solution can provide extensive automation that enables network service management, ensuring the unified security policy to be enforced across all end-points at all locations; it also eliminates both repeated, site-specific configuration efforts and the multi-cloud interconnectivity challenges. With its policy-based traffic routing, bandwidth usage is optimized across multiple WAN connections and distributed locations, especially in this time of increased remote workforce. Even in the most complex applications, SD-WAN should ensure security with its integrated connectivity and application security which can be easily deployed to the branch LANs.

Lanner’s Offering: An Effective Solution

To sum up, SD-WAN is an ecosystem consisting of hardware, software, and services, providing an application-aware network infrastructure to effectively span multiple cloud environments. For this deployment to take effect, the solution needs to meet the following criteria:

  • Assure seamless accessibility from any device to any resource.
  • Deliver optimized network performance and consistent user experience.
  • Enable end-to end visibility and security to protect all applications, user data and transactions.
  • Adapt to dynamic cloud environments with cloud automation.
  • Simplify cloud deployment by streamlining operations while reducing costs.
