Making the Shift to a Business-First Networking Model

The Silver Peak Unity EdgeConnect SD-WAN Edge Platform Powers a Self-Driving Wide Area Network for Cloud-First Enterprises.

While every enterprise’s digital transformation journey is different, industry experts estimate that up to 70 percent of applications have already migrated to the cloud. According to a recent global Frost & Sullivan survey, 62 percent of respondents will have deployed Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) applications and 82 percent of respondents will host workloads in Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) data centers by 2020. While many enterprises continue their cloud migration, some have already moved 100 percent of their application instances to SaaS and IaaS and have ceased operating their own data centers.

In a recent RightScale survey, 81 percent of 997 respondents have a multi-cloud strategy and are already running applications in three or more different clouds. Not only are applications distributed across multiple locations and multiple clouds, users must be able to access them from any device and from anywhere. However, traditional router-based networking approaches weren’t designed for the agile cloud era, complicating the task of connecting users to applications.
