Interconnecting three or more sites across a metro or wide area network has traditionally been accomplished via a hub and spoke network topology using Private Lines, Frame Relay or IP VPNs over the Internet. Ethernet services support hub and spoke topologies but also support an “any-to-any” network topology similar to a LAN but delivered over a wide area. This latter capability is unique to Ethernet services and cannot be cost effectively delivered using legacy point-to-point technologies such as Frame Relay or IP VPNs.
This paper discusses two options for multi-site connectivity using Ethernet services. One option discusses the classical hub and spoke topology using Ethernet Virtual Private Lines (EVPL). The other option discusses the “any-to-any” topology using an Ethernet Private LAN (EP-LAN) service. Through examples, the paper illustrates the capabilities of the two approaches and their benefits.
According to this global survey, in three years more than half of all IT services will be delivered via private, public and hybrid clouds. This study highlights the challenges faced by IT organizations as they move into a new role as “cloud brokers” and how a common data platform can help enable seamless data management across multiple clouds. Read on to learn more.

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.

The brief highlights the VMware enterprise-ready cloud management platform based on VMware vRealize® Suite and powered by Intel® based server platforms.
Der Siegeszug des Cloud Computing prägt längst die Art und Weise, wie Rechenzentren miteinander vernetzt sind. Der architektonische Ansatz, der den Netzwerken zunächst die fehlende Agilität und Schnelligkeit verleihen sollte, heißt Software-Defined Networking (SDN). Jetzt geht es um die Frage, wie das WAN so optimiert werden kann, dass es den dynamischen Anforderungen von Cloud-Anwendungen und -Diensten gerecht wird. Der Trend zu SD-WAN ist eine vergleichsweise junge Marktentwicklung, der die Einführung hybrider WAN-Architekturen voranging.Dieses Dokument bietet eine weltweite Marktprognose für SD-WAN-Produkte und -Services bis 2020. Die Ergebnisse im Überblick.
