WAN has become a barrier, and a big one. Discover how VMware IT took its first steps into VMware SD-WAN by VeloCloud®. We will discuss real-life use cases on how we replaced edge routers, increased performance for end users, brought a new WAN standard to branch offices, and simplified our quality of service (QoS) polices. We will also showcase our currently deployed architecture and VMware IT’s roadmap for the future. This presentation will include an introduction to VMware SD-WAN, and the problems VMware IT was 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, tips for converting the first office, and how to keep the momentum going by supporting SD-WAN for future deployments.
