Cloud computing has dramatically changed WAN traffic, by moving applications that were almost exclusively located in the data center, to distributed cloud sites. As more companies shift applications to the cloud, the Internet receives the majority of traffic. Because the Internet is public, and was not built for mission-critical reliability, performance, and security, there is an increasing need for SD-WANs.
Network traffic connecting to cloud services, like Amazon AWS, Microsoft Azure, and others, can be sensitive to latency, packet loss and jitter, when running over Internet broadband links. Alternatively, MPLS is expensive, inflexible, takes months to provision, and locks companies into a single service provider. As applications move to the cloud, IT managers are beginning to understand the limitations of the Internet, and their private network’s ability to adapt to today’s cloud-driven demands. Many are turning to SD-WANs.
Talari eases connectivity to the cloud
Talari's solution for the cloud extends the reach of the corporate WAN into the cloud, making it possible to control, manage and have visibility into the connection between a company's data center, physical locations, private cloud instances, and public cloud instances.
Talari’s adaptive private network (APN) technology makes migrating applications to the cloud seamless and easy. IT managers can now have the assurance, control, and visibility they need to trust the cloud for business-critical applications.
Talari intelligently addresses network errors, so access to cloud-hosted applications are not interrupted by network quality issues or failures, bandwidth becomes predictable, and data is secured. Talari’s packet-by-packet APN intelligence facilitates the aggregation of multiple broadband, Amazon Direct Connect, and Microsoft ExpressRoute connections. Talari provides continuous measurement and monitoring of the quality of each possible path in each direction, and the adaptation of traffic flows in real-time. This ensures traffic is routed around failures and poor-quality links, making moving business-critical applications to the cloud worry-free.
Once Internet network traffic leaves the boundaries of the corporate WAN, IT has little control over how it gets to its destination and no visibility into any problems faced en route. This has made it difficult to trust critical business processes to the cloud, even as pressure grows to take advantage of the cost savings of IaaS or the functionality of SaaS applications.
Talari's WAN cloud solution extends the reach of the corporate WAN into the cloud, making it possible to control, manage and have visibility into the connection between a company's data center, physical locations, private cloud instances, and public cloud instances. With Talari's software defined WAN Cloud solution, the connection to the cloud is composed of two or more aggregated links and each path is constantly measured and assessed in each direction for availability and quality. Using this information, Talari's WAN cloud solution directs each packet down the best path to ensure that application quality is maximized, that applications and content are always available regardless of any single network failure, and that any issues in performance can be easily identified as network related or not.
