Read this in-depth white paper to learn how to tailor your arguments along a variety of business-aligned pain points and motivations to help you get the backing of key constituents within your organization.
If you’re like most people, the reason you’re looking at OpenStack for a private cloud is because your developers fell in love with public cloud, and you want to give them the same experience, but with better economics, control, and performance of a private cloud.
The reality is that instead of looking to replicate the public cloud experience, privately, we often run in to people that want to fiddle with every aspect of the infrastructure and OpenStack® itself.
Companies start off looking for a public cloud experience, but quickly become more interested in the choice of hypervisor, network models and storage architecture -- none of which are even up for discussion in a public cloud. These questions aren’t wrong to ask, they just shouldn’t matter to you. What should matter is the experience your developers will have in your private cloud,
how your apps will run, and how your private cloud will integrate with your existing systems and apps.
"Now that 72.3% of cloud users have a mix of on-prem/off-prem clouds, the networking game has changed. Traditional app delivery solutions can’t ensure reliable, secure access in a SaaS, multi-device, hybrid, and multi-cloud world.
Get this solution brief to learn why a holistic strategy innately reduces complexities that otherwise would prohitib visibility and control in distributed architectures. The brief also explains:
- The Citrix Networking approach to delivering reliability and a high-quality experience
- How to ensure reliable access to apps at branch and remote locations while keeping costs low
- How to provide full visibility and analytics for your network, applications, users, and data"

Transform your business with services that allow you to innovate faster, simplify operations, and reduce risk. Building on an open, software-driven approach that uses virtualization, automation, analytics, and cloud, our networkwide architecture prepares you to respond to new opportunities at digital speed.
To best support global users and customers, enterprises require seamlessly connectivity between branch office locations, applications, and workloads hosted in the
cloud. Many WAN solutions are ill-equipped for this task because they are generally rigid, complex to configure, and expensive to maintain.
IoT adoption, a dramatic increase of the number of network devices, and the sophistication of security threats further compounds this challenge. Geographically-distributed devices need secure cloud connectivity, limiting the ability of existing WAN solutions to fulfill the need of distributed organizations.
Cisco SD-WAN on Amazon Web Services (AWS) is an overlay WAN architecture that is designed to address modern enterprise cloud applications and workloads, heterogeneous WAN connectivity, distributed global workforces, and other business needs that traditional WAN solutions cannot meet.

"Cloud computing, also known as 'IT as a Service', is predicated on delivering IT services on demand, an idea that has support from business leaders as a way to better align IT with business operations. Cloud computing has two key requirements: virtualized applications and seamless support and integration between the server, networking, storage and hypervisor components.
In this paper, we explore these concepts and highlight the critical features necessary to move beyond server virtualization by leveraging key integration capabilities between IT components-with a particular focus on the important role that storage plays in the evolution of the datacenter architecture."

The IDC Technology Spotlight, The Growing Need for New Technology and a Business Model in Network Monitoring, examines the stresses in today's mobile network planning and operations requiring a new model that incorporates a realistic approach toward cloudification. The paper also looks at the Gigamon solution for visibility in today’s mobile network, which facilitates efforts toward cloudification. This architecture provides maximum, centralized control to the mobile operator’s network planning and operations teams. Read to learn more.
The constant growth of cloud, IoT, virtualization, mobility, and digital transformation has brought tectonic changes to the world of networking. Long viewed as a bastion of single-purpose, inflexible, and closed solutions, networks have started to transform in line with the demands for flexibility, scalability, ease of management, interoperability, and application support. Networking departments need to achieve all of the tasks above while keeping costs under control. Additionally, security requirements for the new network are not letting up — quite the opposite, as the virtualized network (and general IT) environment requires rethinking, virtualization, and evolution of security architectures.
The Cisco SD-WAN solution is a cloud-delivered overlay WAN architecture that enables digital and cloud transformation at enterprises. It significantly reduces WAN costs and time to deploy new services, and, builds a robust security architecture crucial for hybrid networks. Enterprises today face major user experience problems for SaaS applications on account of networking problems. The centralized Internet exit architecture is inefficient and results in poor SaaS performance. And branch sites are running out of capacity to handle Internet traffic which is a concern because more than 50% of branch traffic is destined to the cloud. More importantly there are many dynamic changes in Internet gateways and the SaaS hosting servers that lead to unpredictability in performance. The Cisco SD-WAN solution solves these problems by creating multiple Internet exit points, adding high bandwidth at branch locations, and dynamically steering around problems in real-time, resulting is an optimal SaaS
The role of IT is changing from a traditional focus on cost-efficient enablement to a more strategic contribution. Total Cost of Ownership (TCO), while important, is being surpassed by a growing focus on automation and orchestration that is needed to fulfill enterprise demands for security, agility, and innovation. The cloud-grade enterprise network – spanning the campus, data center, and branch – must be able to respond to rapid changes in business, growing reliance on hybrid cloud architectures, and the needs of users and customers.

The goal of a Cloud-Managed Network is to make deployment, management and control over network infrastructure devices very easy, offset the need for trained IT staff at remote locations or for geographically dispersed organizations, and it provides both OpEx and CapEx savings. This comprehensive white paper provides you with information needed to successfully guide you through the decision-making process of determining the right network for your business.
Here’s what is covered:
- Overview of the rapid evolution of wireless LANs
- The Ins and outs of Cloud-Managed Networking
- The many benefits of a Cloud-Managed Network
- Top considerations you need to know when evaluating solutions
Research and Education (R&E) networks are experiencing a surge in capacity demand as a result of the massive growth of streaming media (Netflix, Facebook, YouTube), growing utilization of public cloud services, and the continued need to support large scientific data file transfers for researchers collaborating around the globe. This increase in traffic is driving many operators to evaluate network backbone upgrades to 100G. Upgrading is necessary but costly. But what if operators could upgrade their R&E networks to 100G for 50 percent less CAPEX investment and extend the life of the existing routers, while actually simplifying the architecture to enable lower operational costs?
