Viptela Launches Cloud onRamp
July 14, 2017
Cloud onRamp enables organizations to seamlessly connect users and sites
to the cloud, including infrastructure services (IaaS) and SaaS
applications, while providing a highly optimized user-experience. Cloud
onRamp is part of Viptela Fabric, a single platform that supports
multiple use-cases including SD-WAN, Cloud Networking,
Network-as-a-Service and AppUX.
“Viptela Cloud onRamp has transformed the user experience for our
cloud-based services,” said Pascal Heger, Global Network Architect for
Agilent Technologies. “For example, Microsoft Office 365 response times
have improved dramatically, especially at our international sites. We
have fewer screen-freezes and a more responsive application experience.
Viptela Cloud onRamp also enables a seamless migration to AWS.”
Optimized IaaS and SaaS Clouds
Viptela Cloud onRamp addresses the primary challenges enterprises face
in connecting to IaaS and SaaS providers while still ensuring security
and an optimal user experience.
For IaaS applications, like AWS and Microsoft Azure, Cloud onRamp
extends the Viptela Fabric from enterprise sites to these services by
automatically instantiating virtual instances of its vEdge router inside
the customer’s cloud. These instances automatically transform the cloud
into an extension of the enterprise branch (as opposed to an extension
of the data-center) to optimize the user-experience. Cloud onRamp can
segment public cloud workloads through policies that enable the creation
of multiple VPNs on top of a single fabric. The entire infrastructure is
centrally managed for connectivity, security, policy and access control.
For SaaS applications, like Microsoft Office 365 and Salesforce.com,
Cloud onRamp uses vEdge routers in branches, regional colocation
facilities or data centers to monitor performance and availability, and
dynamically determine the best Internet path to the SaaS application.
These cloud Gateways provide both network and application optimization
in real-time based on changing network conditions.
“Microsoft Azure is playing a foundational role in our cloud strategy,”
said John Shaffer CIO, Greenhill & Co. “Since we have deployed Viptela
on a global basis at our physical locations, the value of extending
Viptela Fabric directly into the Azure cloud for direct VNET
connectivity is transformational.”
Cloud Transformation Benefits
To enable enterprises to seamlessly
migrate to public cloud IaaS and SaaS applications, Cloud onRamp
provides the following comprehensive set of benefits:
Direct branch to cloud connectivity at enterprise scale across multiple
regions and providers
• Extends all Viptela Fabric
capabilities, including application visibility and steering, transport
resilience and security to laaS/PaaS instances
• Establishes a single point of
control for policy management and configuration across branch and cloud
• Improves SaaS application
experience for enterprise branch users
• Improves visibility into SaaS
application performance across all branches based on network
• Guarantees resilient access to SaaS
applications by implementing multiple DMZs/Internet Gateways
“Traditional WANs were not designed for the cloud, and as such pose
major challenges in terms of complexity and user experience for
enterprises that are aggressively adopting SaaS applications and public
cloud infrastructures,” said Praveen Akkiraju, CEO for Viptela. “Viptela
Cloud onRamp connects users in the branch to applications in the cloud
in a seamless, secure and reliable fashion, while delivering an
on-premise level user experience."
Viptela Cloud onRamp is available immediately.
