The Time for the Hybrid WAN IT has gone through a significant evolution over the past decade. Virtualization has changed the entire face of the data center, the network edge has become predominantly wireless and consumer devices reign supreme. However, one of the few areas of IT that has yet to evolve is the corporate wide area network (WAN). Managing the WAN is something network managers have always struggled with because WAN speeds are typically an order of magnitude, or more, slower than local area networks (LANs).

Enterprises currently face challenges regarding the price, performance, and flexibility of traditional wide area networks (WANs). Aggressive growth in the adoption of public cloud services (a projected 86% spike between 2014 and 2018)1 is forcing organizations to look elsewhere for a more effective network solution to address distributed traffic across remote sites and branch offices. Some of the specific issues organizations face with their traditional WANs include: - High total cost of ownership (TCO) - Lengthy provisioning cycles - Performance degradation with the growth of cloud traffic - Inadequate redundancy and resiliency - Lack of application-aware connectivity To better manage WAN investments, enterprises are adopting a new approach for their distributed branch office networks. Software-defined WAN (SD-WAN) offers improved performance, agility, and operational flexibility plus significant cost savings. But not all SDWAN solutions are created equal.

If you’re dealing with the high cost and complexities of delivering reliable wide area connectivity over traditional carrier-based networks, you’re probably considering some form of software-defined wide area networking (SD-WAN). With the variety of constraints that you face, selecting the right SD-WAN solution for your enterprise may require a few compromises. Security, however, should not be one of them. There are various models for combining SD-WAN and network security, but only one that can truly be called “secure SD-WAN.” Fortinet, the most trusted name in network security, has leveraged its industry-leading FortiGate Next Generation Firewall (NGFW) to deliver integrated best-of-breed SD-WAN capabilities. Powered by the new FortiOS 6.0 operating system, SD-WANenabled FortiGate solutions provide the right level of service for every application, while ensuring effective protection from advanced evolving threats across your distributed enterprise.

As enterprise computing has evolved, businesses have been shifting to a “hybrid enterprise” where core applications and data can be located in private data centers and public clouds. The growth of hybrid cloud deployments accelerated the transition to hybrid wide-area networks (WANs). Private networks, such as MPLS, are being joined by Internet connections that offer a choice in delivery channels—costly, but predictable, networks for mission-critical loads and cheaper public networks for bulk loads such as data backups.

Getting your applications to work properly over a Wide Area Network (WAN) is a complex task, and it is not likely to get easier any time soon. Trends such as data center consolidation, the advent of Web 2.0 applications, and the move to web-based application delivery have only served to increase complexity and slow user response times. Often, the result is sluggish application response and at worst, abandoned applications and shopping carts due to slow or failed web page loads. The good news is that you can do something to improve application performance over slow or congested WAN networks. An Application Delivery Network can accelerate your applications and help make sure they’re secure, fast, and available.

One of the leading ways that today’s organizations are providing secure, reliable and scalable answers for their networking needs is through MPLS IP-VPN network usage. However, businesses are also looking to create Intelligent WAN that integrates security, application performance management, and cloud services in order to create more intelligent wide area networks. This paper examines how to use the attributes of MPLS-based VPNs to enable enterprises to create a truly intelligent WAN, discussing key planning, implementation and management considerations to pave the way for a more intelligent and cloud-enabled WAN.

What is the key benefit of SD-WAN? To provide seamless access to digital services for end-users. But IT is more distributed, fragmentary, and dynamic than ever, with hybrid apps, hybrid networks, and remote and mobile users everywhere. Hardware-bound legacy networks can never fulfill the promise of seamless access. Taming the chaos of today’s IT requires a new approach to networking. This is the promise of software-defined wide area networks (SD-WAN)—the ability to use plain-language business policies to automate and orchestrate all the components of digital access. Read this white paper to learn how SD-WAN lets you: • Manage centrally from a cloud console with a comprehensive view of your connectivity fabric that spans and unifies datacenter/cloud apps, branch/mobile users, and enterprise/cloud networks. • Orchestrate globally using business policy-based automation to define quality of service and access privileges for all apps/users. • Deploy locally with zero touch via automated

Enterprises have long been battling the inherent performance limitations of Wide Area Networks (WANs) when delivering applications to remote offices. Caching emerged in the 1990’s as a potential way of addressing this problem, accelerating the performance of specific applications, such as web services, while reducing overall WAN traffic. While caching achieved reasonable success for a few short years, the market for these point products ultimately subsided as a result of several operational and functional limitations. Enterprises require an application acceleration solution that spans all types of traffic, one that is easy to manage, and 100% data coherency when supporting business-critical applications. This white paper will address these issues and offer a solution that addresses these enterprise requirements. The result is a complete solution for improved application delivery across a distributed enterprise environment.

Patton Harris and Rust and Associates has 13 branches.  Management and IT needed a way to help these offices work on projects together to optimize company resources.  Using GlobalSCAPE WAFS gave PHR+A fast file access across branches using minimal system resources. No management is required as it operates in the background and real time byte level differencing not only reduces bandwidth usage and spikes but also the changes are sent as they happen – not when they are needed.

Jordan & Skala Engineers is a growing company with 5 offices.  It needed a scalable solution to optimize their network and their resources as more and more work was distributed across sites. Using GlobalSCAPE WAFS files mirror instantly in real time using byte-level differencing.  So as soon as a file is saved or closed, the file deltas appear in every other location on the network. Users are never waiting for files to upload, download, or open across a network.

Disaster can strike when you least expect it.  So how do you back up and maintain control of your data and still provide access to data in a distributed organization?  The challenges are clear...large and growing amounts of data need to be distributed across many sites yet complications such as bandwidth usage, file coherence, version consistency, and file latency all result in lost productivity.

Today, data volumes are growing exponentially and organizations of every size are struggling to manage what has become a very expensive and complex problem. It causes real issues such as: • Overprovisioning their backup infrastructure to anticipate rapid future growth. • Legacy systems can’t cope and backups take too long or are incomplete. • Companies miss recovery point objectives and recovery time targets. • Backups overload infrastructure and network bandwidth. • Not embracing new technologies, such as cloud backup, because there is too much data to transfer over wide area networks.
