Why are customers moving to SD-WAN? With more than 70 percent of applications having already moved to the cloud, forward-thinking enterprises are re-thinking their WAN strategy to attain the best return from their cloud investments. Many have discovered that traditional router-centric architectures that backhaul all application traffic to headquarters is impairing the performance of SaaS applications and IaaS services. By shifting to a business-first networking model where the network enables the business, rather than the business conforming to the constraints of the network, enterprises can realize the full transformation promise of the cloud. A business-driven SD-WAN edge platform can deliver compelling cost savings, too.
