Dell Technologies announced new SD-WAN solution that can help customers move away from complex, slow-to-innovate and expensive branch office networking.
The new SD-WAN solution delivers all-in-one simplicity - combining VMware SD-WAN by VeloCloud software available as a flexible subscription with highly-engineered and efficient modern appliances in multiple configuration options.
VMware SD-WAN by VeloCloud includes: a choice of public, private or hybrid cloud network for enterprise-grade connection to cloud and enterprise applications; branch office enterprise appliances and optional data center appliances; software-defined control and automation; and virtual services delivery. Software subscription options can be upgraded to accommodate changing business requirements for features, duration and bandwidth.
The Dell EMC SD-WAN Solution has three key components:
- SD-WAN Edge powered by VMware - networking specific, purpose-built appliances designed for high efficiency and reliability
- SD-WAN Orchestrator - cloud-based management and orchestration software services from VMware, managed by Dell EMC
- SD-WAN Gateways - a global network of more secure, application-focused access gateways from VMware to handle WAN traffic
Dell EMC and VMware also announced SmartFabric Director – an innovation in software-defined networking that enables the physical switch underlay infrastructure to keep pace with the changing demands of virtualized and software-defined networks.
Tom Burns, SVP and GM, Dell EMC Networking & Solutions
"New SD-WAN solutions powered by VMware and network fabric management delivered by SmartFabric Director raise the stakes when it comes to network virtualization and security in today's highly-distributed software-defined enterprise."
Frank Cittadino, CEO, QOS Networks
"As a trusted partner to Dell EMC, we're excited to do that with an SD-WAN solution that marries cost effective hardware with a dedicated orchestrator and VMware gateway. We combine that with our 5-Tool monitoring and management platform."
