Riverbed’s SD-WAN Integration Now Officially Validated on AWS
It’s official, Riverbed’s SD-WAN integration with Amazon Web Services (AWS) has been tested and validated. It’s no surprise that Riverbed, an AWS Advanced Technology Partner, has been announced as a recommended software-defined WAN (SD-WAN) vendor to all AWS customers when considering cloud networking solutions. AWS has just released their SD-WAN buyers guide, and you can read it here.
Cloud computing has become a transformative force in the IT world, and we all know it. In today’s hybrid enterprise, most organizations using cloud services still have on-premises resources. It is becoming clear that organizations are looking to ensure easy and secure connectivity with a seamless experience for customers and employees. And that is where SD-WAN comes in as a solution to help consolidate networking, visibility and management of Cloud and on-premises usage. According to a study by ESG, the most compelling reasons to adopt or consider SD-WAN included:
- Simplified management
- Automation, and increasing public cloud utilization
- Centralized control/configuration, and management monitoring
Why Riverbed and AWS together?
Let’s get into some of the good stuff here. To ensure a successful move to AWS through every step of the cloud journey, Riverbed can map application dependencies, automate secure full-mesh connectivity, accelerate enterprises to move more applications and workloads to AWS through optimization and latency mitigation, and monitor user experience metrics-all managed via quick and simple workflows. The Riverbed-AWS partnership supports and enhances cloud migration initiatives helping unlock business agility, performance, and efficiency end-to-end.
