Breaking with Tradition: How VMware IT Transformed WAN with VMware SD-WAN
WAN has become a barrier, and a big one. Discover how VMware IT took its first steps into SD-WAN. Real-life use cases on how we replaced the edge routers, increased performance for end users, brought a new WAN standard to the branch offices, and simplified our overly complex QOS polices will be discussed. Plus, our team will showcase our currently deployed architecture and VMware IT’s roadmap for the future. Includes introduction to VMware VeloCloud® and VMware NSX® SD-WAN, what problems were VMware IT trying to solve, figuring out what SD-WAN is not—and how VMware IT planned for that, as well as challenges VMware faced (and you can avoid). Finally, we’ll cover planning, migration and execution tips when converting the first office, and how to keep the momentum going by supporting SD-WAN and targeting future deployments.
