Cloud Platforms such as IaaS and PaaS have become a significant enabler for many companies. Traditional datacenter hosted applications are more and more expanded with cloud based infrastructure services, so called Hybrid Cloud Architecture. An important enabler to provide Hybrid Cloud Services is a reliable, performant and cost efficient connection between all company locations and the cloud services.
One of the biggest concerns for Cloud transitions is the base network architecture. Traditional WAN architectures often lack on flexibility. Connecting Cloud Services to an inappropriate network leads to limited performance or availability.
SmartConnect provides the ability to directly integrate Cloud Infrastructure Services from any cloud vendor into the network. This simplifies the cloud architecture, reduce costs and safe deployment time.
