Integrates Viptela SD-WAN Technology Into AppHUBTM High-Performance Application Delivery Platform
HERNDON, VA – April 13, 2016 – CFN Services, the high-performance application delivery company for hybrid cloud IT environments, announced the integration of Viptela software-defined wide area networking (SD-WAN) technology within its AppHUB global application delivery platform. Viptela’s SD-WAN technology is deployed across the AppHUB global platform which spans 185 markets in 41 countries and currently used by several customers with geographically distributed operations that rely on real-time cloud applications to run their business. AppHUB’s high-performance infrastructure coupled with SD-WAN technology enables on-demand integration of SaaS applications via secure gateways over an enterprise-grade Internet that avoids the congested public Internet.
Enterprises leverage AppHUB to simplify the integration of on-premise IT and cloud ecosystems improving enterprise cloud application performance. Since on-premise IT environments do not decouple the software stack when applications are moved to cloud environments, application performance and real-time data and collaboration requirements are impacted. Combining Viptela’s SDN technology with AppHUB’s secure, high-performance SaaS gateways, AppHUB offers enterprises ease of cloud integration with legacy on-premise environments including remote branch offices and mobile users.
The Viptela SD-WAN platform enables enterprises to “mix and match” private and public IP connections such as MPLS, wireless LTE/4G, broadband and Ethernet to meet application requirements based on geographic location, bandwidth and whether they are based in the branch office, campus, data center or cloud. SD-WAN further strengthens AppHUB security by providing device authentication and complete packet encryption. With added security for SaaS data delivery over direct gateways to enterprise IT environments, AppHUB extends the utility of existing MPLS and public Internet services or potentially replaces them entirely.
“As the shift to cloud applications accelerates, we’re seeing enterprises accustomed to LAN-like performance struggle to meet user experience expectations and maintain real-time application requirements, “ said Mark Casey, President, and CEO of CFN Services. “Enterprises that lack SDN resources can now leverage AppHUB to solve cloud application security, performance, and management challenges through one platform, with the benefits of SD-WAN technology built-in.”
“For most enterprises, the cloud has become a central hub for storing data and accessing applications, yet traditional networks are designed to support on-premise data center architectures,” said Amir Khan, Co-founder, and CEO of Viptela. “This results in long latencies, slow response times and a poor user experience. The Viptela SD-WAN platform optimizes WAN infrastructures for the cloud. Our partnership with CFN Services enables Viptela traffic to run on APPHUB for even greater cloud app performance.”
