VMware SD-WAN assures enterprise and cloud application performance over Internet and hybrid WAN.
VMware SD-WAN assures enterprise and cloud application performance over Internet and hybrid WAN while simplifying deployments and reducing costs. The SD-WAN Edges are zero-touch enterprise-class appliances that provide secure optimized connectivity to private, public and hybrid applications, compute and virtualized services. SD-WAN Edges perform deep application recognition, application and packet steering, performance metrics and end to end quality of service in addition to hosting virtual network function (VNF) services.
Accelerate and optimize connectivity to Azure workloads
VMware and Microsoft enable customers to build networks for optimized cloud access by creating a virtual cloud network architecture that connects all their locations to Azure. Enterprises leverage Microsoft’s expansive global vWAN together with VMware SD-WAN™ to greatly simplify configuration, security, and last-mile internet connectivity ensuring application availability and performance. Our integration with Azure Virtual WAN Hub provides customers native connectivity into Azure cloud networking, enabling deployment of VMware SD-WAN Edges directly inside Azure virtual WAN hubs.
Compute at the edge for latency-sensitive applications and workloads
Edge compute is happening now, as evidenced by the rise in autonomous vehicles, predictive maintenance, and cloud gaming. To achieve automation and a high-quality user experience, these and other latency- sensitive applications require compute to occur closer to the user. Azure Edge Zones provides enterprises with compute at the edge and by deploying VMware SD-WAN™ across Azure Edge Zones, latency- sensitive applications can be identified and steered to the nearest Azure Edge compute location. Once deployed, enterprises can manage all SD-WAN Edge VNFs using a single VMware SD-WAN Orchestrator.
Supercharge App Performance with VMware SD-WAN and Microsoft 365
VMware SD-WAN™ combines the operational simplicity and economics of a self-healing overlay to optimize connectivity to your business-critical Microsoft 365 applications. The VMware SD-WAN Edge automatically joins the SD-WAN fabric after it’s powered on and connected to the Internet.
The Edge devices differentiate and apply customizable business policy to the Microsoft 365 traffic in accordance with Microsoft 365 network connectivity principles. The VMware SD-WAN Orchestrator automatically pulls the application information, across all Microsoft 365 workloads, and seamlessly updates the application recognition engine on the edges. By default, VMware SD-WAN routes Microsoft 365 traffic to the closest VMware SD-WAN Network of cloud gateways. It then hands off to the best peering Microsoft 365 locations in an optimized way, delivering an enhanced user experience without compromising workload security.
